I am a jewellery artist and designer born in Vilnius, Lithuania, currently living and working in Stockholm, Sweden. My jewellery work is about links between human bodies and spaces, in specific, the spaces of transition, and of possibilities of objects such as jewellery to function as mediators in everyday settings.

I graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and acquired a Master’s Degree at Konstfack university college of Arts Crafts and Design in Stockholm.
