As leader of the jewellery studio “Art7”, artist Wojciech Kalandyk mentions, “since the moment I started working with Amber, I have always been amazed by the various impressions it can make depending on how it was worked. As today a lot of jewelers work with Amber in Baltic region, a question soon aroused, how to excel among others. The studio “Art7” from Gdańsk has been searching for the answer for many years, and has presented the stone in spectacular, wonderful and simple in use jewellery pieces. Unique design and experimental approach to our favorite jewellery material, amber, is result of many years of the aesthetic search. We draw inspiration from the primeval beauty of amber and Modern trends in design, architecture, and fashion”.
