The sophisticated simplicity and elegance in Eugeniusz Salwierz

With a piece of "Baltic gold" he brings out what is most valuable beneath its surface.

Eugeniusz Salwierz is an artist from Krakow. He began by creating jewelry made of acrylic glass. Later he switched to amber, and his love for him began in the mid-90s from the Dominican fairs in Gdansk.

In the book "Amber not only on the Baltic Sea", in an interview with Anna Sado he said: "Amber  I liked immediately, but also from the very beginning approached him a little differently. Back then amber craftsmen in Gdansk most valued transparent, clean cuts, and I liked "dirty" pieces that had "something": a piece of stick, even a hole or an unpolished piece. For me, these are the most beautiful, because they "live". Later he began to combination amber with acrylic glass. His jewelery is unique. These are mostly simple, modern, geometric forms. In addition to jewelry design he also performs industrial forms, such as turntables, amplifiers, speakers or furniture.

Repeatedly honored for his artistic achievements. In 2006, for rings made of acrylic glass combined with amber he received an award in the contest jewelry Mercurius Gedanensis at the Amber, Jewellery and Gemstones Fair - Amberif in Gdansk. Since 2008, his jewelry is presented at numerous jewelery and fashion shows throughout Poland and the world. In 2011, he won the "Golden Frame" award of the centenary of the Association of Polish Artists in Krakow for his "Individual Turntables".
