Jolanta Gazda

Jolanta Gazda. Polish Jewelry. diseñadora de joyas. Joyería contemporánea

1974, Poland.

It took her some time to find her professional path. She has studied mathematics, created scenography for concerts, worked as a make-up artist (specializing in scars and wounds) and been a costume designer. There has been a moment in her life when everything became just hyper and she needs to slow down. She decided to take some time off mostly everything and anything. With this free and unfilled space came the idea of making jewelry. She was searching for some creative and manual work that could be done in the seclusion of a studio, focused and in silence, which she needed so much.

For the last few years she has been working in her own studio and building her brand: Frou Frou.
