Creating techniques unique to her work, Alena’s jewellery forms an elaborate filigree style from polyethylene films. Transferring her designs onto the film, each one is intricately hand cut before heat-treating them. The result is influenced very much by the material’s “will of its own” and therefore represents a fusion of design and destiny. A plastic that is omnipresent in our everyday lives but little appreciated is transformed by imagination and skilled craftsmanship into something unexpectedly precious.
Originally from Czechia, Alena studied Fashion Design at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. She later moved to Berlin where she set up her jewellery brand.
