About a year ago I discovered Juste's work, and I was immediately drawn to her sense of creativity and felt connected with her aesthetics. She's not only a wonderful photographer, but she also creates stunning jewels for her Etsy shop. She captures the world in such a beautiful manner both in her photography and in her creations. I'm very honoured and humbled for the opportunity to work with such a wonderful soul.
First of all I would like to thank you for inviting me to your lovely blog.
Photography and Etsy jewelry shop both came to my world very naturally. I have been living in an artsy environment from when I was a little kid – I have been attending music lessons for many years and later I have decided to try myself in doing fine arts. Both of my parents are graduates in artisan specialties as well, so I could probably say that art is in my blood. After graduating from art school I have been studying photography in the academy of arts for four years and I now hold a bachelor’s degree in photography.
Since I have always loved to spend time making handmade items I have discovered Etsy and decided to open my own online handmade shop while still being a student and a photographer at the same time. Many things have changed in my shop since then and even more will probably change in a future but in my opinion creativity is always about transformation.
What’s the favorite part of your work?
Most favorite part is design and production of the item. Packaging and handling is something I appreciate as well, I like to think about how the little note I left in the package box travels to a most distant place far away in another side of a world. My greatest dream is to visit those places and see the people wearing the items I have made for them.
Which item that you created do you like the most?
It would not be easy to pick a single one item. I tend to give myself in completely to what I do at the moment therefore I like my most current successful creation the most. My series of famous geometric necklaces is something that makes me proud the most, unfortunately I had to cease them and I am currently seeking new ways to produce them more efficiently so maybe they will come back one day
What effect do the seasons have on you?
As days grow longer and trees go greener, unexpected contrasts, playfulness and easiness begin to show. And quite the opposite, brown, grey and deep tones take over in the autumn. Currently my color palette is dominated by vibrant and bright undertones.
Any plan for the future?
I have lots of plans. I am thinking of my winter collection now however I tend to keep the plans to myself to save their energy until I finish a product completely.
