Molecular jewellery

  • • Nenad approaches jewellery with a scientific mind
  • • He has made filigree exciting
  • • He creates wearable sculptures

The story of the jeweller Nenad Stojaković is not a usual one. A creator from a very early age, he embarked on scientific studies in molecular biology. Enchanted with nuclear shapes, micro animals, and atomic bonds, he wanted to transfer them into his passion: jewellery making. Eventually, the hobby prevailed and Nenad got a scholarship for Accademia Riaci in Florence to study jewellery design. In 2010, he opened his own workshop and started to develop his unique design. Inspired by molecular formations, but also by the monumental memorial heritage of Yugoslavia, Nenad treats his rings as wearable sculptures. He continues to explore the craft and discover new and old techniques as he continues to meditate on his creative visions expressed in minuscule 3D garments.
