Eva Poženel, creating under the jewellery brand Mokosh Jewels.
Nature in various forms inspires me. Minuscule worlds and the cosmos as a whole, living organisms, man's place in the world now and through history and myth.
My work ranges from minimalist, clear and logical to abundant, organic and imperfect, visibly handmade structures, hinting at antiquity and often eclectic.
Fine detail, rich texture, playfulness, quirkiness, blended with sophistication and comfort are the trademarks of Mokosh Jewels.
Jewellery is timeless and attractive from the dawn of man. It is a part of our collective human imprint, our search of beauty and the individual's need of self expression.
Mokosh is a Slavic goddess of fertility, protector of women and their destinies. In the Slavic pantheon, she is responsible for spinning, weaving and knitting, which are tightly connected to goddesses of fate in various mythologies. The choice of brand name is thus reasonable; threads, and lace are signature elements of my design.
