With each collection uniquely diverse to each other, Petrut begins every new design journey by experimenting with a technique or material whilst writing ideas about the concept. Although at times the talented designer claims this can be down to gut instinct, she strongly believes the concept is the crucial factor that dictates the next step and drives the direction of  the design process.

Placing enhanced focus on the concept of time, the “Here and Now.” collection features an array of delicate pieces relaying Petrut’s ideology of life;

“Here and now are the only things we should experience, and yet, this is the most difficult thing to do.”

Reflecting on the complications of punctuality Izabella believes the significance of time poses great importance to her daily life and work.

The talented designer’s conceptual collection hosts a unique array of abstruse shapes gracefully placed on organic jewellery designs, appearing stylish and elegant with an added quirky edge. The designer devotes words of inspiring explanation to each piece, strengthening the comprehension and connection between the wearer, reinforcing its empathetic manner. With each piece carefully constructed from precious crystals, stones, resin and pigment, the durable rocks represent the workings of time and fascination, whilst resin and pigment deliver the drama within the story thanks to its variety of textures.

Describing her art of construction as spontaneous, hectic, and surprising the Romanian designer believes keeping true to herself makes her vision unique. As each project has a different relationship to its materials, every individual touch is unique and represents an unrepeatable moment in time;

“Every paint stroke I make, every finger print you might find in the paint, all the scratches only I can make that way.”
