Rita Besnyői - jewelry maker

Welcome, I am Rita Besnyői, hungarian based jewelry artist, originally graduated as an architect, later did I venture into jewelry field. My works are fueled by personal memories and experiences, most of the collections are dedicated to a special period of my life. Using jewelry creation as an art therapy for myself, I am experimenting many materials paralel, prying their and my own limits meanwhile. I run my own opened co-workshop studio for jewelry makers in the heart of Budapest.

"Építészként végeztem a műegyetemen, később kerültek előtérbe nálam a kisebb tárgyak, ékszerek. Az anyagokhoz való vonzódásom, kíváncsiságom és szeretetem itt gyökerezhet, és a tervezői háttér valószínűleg sokat segít a tárgyalkotásban is, ami sokkal szabadabb, de ugyanakkor magányosabb folyamat. Viselhető tárgyaim szinte minden esetben személyes érzéseim, az engem ért hatások feldolgozásai. Saját magam, emlékeim boncolgatása közben rengeteg anyaghoz nyúlok, melyekkel párhuzamosan, kötetlenül kísérletezek, egyik elvezet a másikhoz, újabb kérdéseket vet föl, amire egy következő próba a válasz. Majd a szilánkok autonóm módon találnak párt maguknak, vagy hosszú ideig várakoznak az asztalomon. Azzal tudom, hogy még van dolgom. Az egyik legizgalmasabb eredménynek tartom, ha egy anyagnak olyan arcát fedezem fel, amely előtte láthatatlan volt számomra."
