Nevena Arsic jewelry exhibited at Ethnographic Museum

BELGRADE - The exhibition of jewelry by Nevena Arsic, inspired by the antique jewelry from Serbian archaeological sites dating from the Late Antique and Early Byzantine periods and medieval Serbian jewelry, will be opened at the Ethnographic Museum in Belgrade on Tuesday.

Arsic will present necklaces, bracelets, rings, hairpins and earrings made of copper or fine silver.

The main feature of Arsic's jewelry, as critics have said, is that it represents the crossing point of tradition as inspiration and modern design as expression of the artist's sensibility.

The exhibition dubbed "Adidjari" is a synthesis of such poetics and the culmination of her creative search towards a modern expression in Serbian jewelry with a discreet reflection of folk, medieval and Roman tradition.

"For me, each piece of jewelry is a small sculpture," says the artist, adding that the key word for well-designed jewelry is functionality.

"Another important component is the aesthetics that expresses the individuality of the person who wears it, because this is the only way in which jewelry comes to the forefront. Of course, the trademark of the author and the quality of jewelry are also important, regardless of the material in question," Arsic said, adding that she is trying to combine all of these components.

Nevena Arsic was born in Belgrade in 1979, where she graduated from the Faculty of Applied Arts in 2005. She is a member of the Association of Applied Arts Artists and Designers of Serbia (ULUPUDS).

She has already displayed her jewelry at individual and group exhibitions, as well as at fashion events in Belgrade, Vienna, Zagreb, Moscow, Munich, Dubai and Paris.

The exhibition will be open by November...
