driven by an inquisitive view on the world that constantly fuels her interest towards interdisciplinary approaches, smaranda’s practice situates at the intersection of design and sculpture, using jewellery as her main medium of expression.

highly influenced by her first passion — dance — her work is usually based around motion, often integrating a performative side through video, photography and new technology.

informed by a conceptual approach, her process involves sustainable thinking, blending poetic narratives with a digital workflow, responding to environmental, philosophical or observational themes.

she holds a ba in jewellery design from ual central saint martins and lives and works in london, united kingdom.
