Technology has changed our communication, also changed the way we show our feelings.This multiplicity of this information is endless, with amazing systems making our life better, stronger, and faster.My spirit is of an artist. It's a gentle way of looking at life, a feeling that I bring with me always.The human kindness, beauty, the aesthetic harmony has an unusual fasciination over me. When I admire a work of art, a beautiful poem, a sculpture, a painting, creative in and of itself it kindles my spirit to create. For there is a thread of love uniting creator and creation, the soul expressed throught the object. It is the soul of the artist that gives life to the art, and allowing human spirit to touch our heart.So if you have the passion of creativity release it. Let to go like a bird set free from a case. Dream your dreams, give them fight, and take a deep breath of your new life.

Art in ClayThe art of clay is an ancient activity, dating back more tham three thousand before Christ.Today in Bazsil ,The popularty of clay art is widespread. It is a legacy left of the Indians.The Indians women made clay toys for the children and household objects like bowls and pots.The pieces were modeled according to their creativity or need. They were often painted with strong color inspired by nature.


Art in Jewelry
The handmade jewelry always gone hand in hand with the metallurgy.When a piece is annealed to soften it, when we mix copper in silver to create a stronger alloy or when it is warmed for ask to solder run we are using knowledge of centuries of metallurgical.In the 1970s, a branch of metallurgy has taken a big technological leap: the Powder Metallurgy.It is the manufacture of metal parts from powdered metals which are subsequently resigned and replaced by a sintering process at high temperatures, producing parts of complex shapes with greater energy savings and reduced disposal of material, compared to traditional forms - casting and machining.There are about ten years, this new technology arrived at the handmade jewelry, with the creation of products Art Clay Art Clay Silver and 22K Gold. Because the jewelry world is going through a crisis. This occurs for several reasons, including the fact that jewelry were lost, as dream come true for other fashion accessories like handbags and shoes, cars and electronics to art, and another relevant factor was the lack of innovation in jewelry.Without out investing in design, the jewelry has lost its value as art.

Art Clay in jewelry
The main element of differentiation of handcrafted jewelry for the industry is that they are unique. Not only as a unit is not repeated in a production scale, but only since the creation: a custom job, where you see the hand of the artist and where he can express themselves freely. The handmade jewelry is an art form. A leaf harvested from a memorable trip. A flower gift from a dear friend. A ladybug, a branch of a rose, a piece of income: all these materials can be eternalize in a silver jewelry through the use of Art Clay Silver. The Art Clay Silver, a body composed of microscopic grains of pure silver which has the consistency of clay, can be diluted into a paste and applied to organic materials such as leaves and tissues. After drying, these parts are burned - the stove burner or oven to high temperature - and the organic material is consumed completely, leaving behind his impression immortalized in silver.The result is jewelry faithful to the objects that "inspired" - light and delicate, ideal to be applied in earrings and pendants.
