Let me announce My Fashion Lust List's next giveaway
in cooperation with vadjutka!
This time you can win a gorgeous, variable and innovative Swapflower necklace
made by vadjutka!
I first saw vadjutka's jewelries on Etsy in October, 2010 and they caught me at the first sight.
I immediately e-mailed her, then she asked me to e-mail her again in January when she'll have a new collection out and she was happily going to give a piece of those to my darling readers.
So now, 4 months after I found her work, here we are, and now it's time to give my readers and followers the chance to win this amazing piece!
MFLL: What led you to start making these pretty and unique jewelries?
vadjutka: To tell the truth: I have no idea, it just came. I made jewelry in high school, but I stopped it when everyone wanted the same earring, and I had to make 20 pairs of identical earrings. After 10 years it just came back: one day – in 2002 - I was passing a bead shop, and I just went in, bought a lot of beads and tools, and (re)started making jewelry.
MFLL: Swapflowers are pretty innovative in a way. What are they exactly and how did the idea of swapflowers come up?
vadjutka: I wanted to make a necklace that is variable, and suitable for a lot of clothes. I have many clothes, and though I have MANY necklaces, but I dont always have the exact color I want for a given top for example. So I though it would be practical if I could change the color of the necklace, thus it would be good with many clothes. I had this idea in my mind for more than a year now, but it only gained form in September, 2010, when I met Ilona Acs, the designer behind Laoni Leather Design, whom I am doing the Swapflowers with.
MFLL: Who are you and what else do you do in your life?
vadjutka: Well, who am I? I would like to believe that someone who is brave enough to be honest to herself. (Not always easy.) Apart from designing jewelry, I have a part time job: I edit www.designbazar.hu, a site with focus on indie Hungarian designers. Besides, I like photography (I studied photo journalism for 3 years), hiking and cooking. And dancing of course.
MFLL: Where can one purchase your gorgeous pieces?
vadjutka: In my etsy shop, and I ship to a few boutiques in the US. Also, if you are in Budapest, you can find me at the monthly Sunday Art Market.
MFLL: What are your plans for your next collection? Will you come out with anything new?
vadjutka: I have big plans: I am going to launch a new line called Vadjutka Exclusive. This will be a service: I am going to design jewelry for specific wedding and other elegant dresses. Also, I just launched a „sub” design: I started to use magnifying glasses with some of my necklace, that adds a little magical feeling to the necklace.
