One of the TLT designers, Aleksandra, has an exciting new project we were completely charmed by, so we invited her over for a chat.
Can you tell us about the idea behind the wooden princess pendants?
SF: I love illustration. I have kept to MDF with painted board surface as a material cut into various shapes for so long because it is an incredible foundation for my illustrations, while the same MDF board jewelry radiates a direct communication and exchange.
I have imagined the characters of the princesses for a long time… unspeakably long time. The idea may have had its origin at the time I created the collection called “Our People”. I wanted them to be real persons, each a tale of her own so that I could narrate those tales more directly. And maybe this is that original idea.
Who are the princesses?
What materials do you use in creating this unique wooden necklace pendants?
SF: The princesses are drawn onto a MDF board, after which they are cut out by hand. I paint the princesses with different thickness of markers, colorful inks, watercolors and they are varnished with acrylic matte polish.
