Designer Kristýna Malovaná has a very close relationship with jewellery, which for her is a kind of personal form of expression. That is why her every item is made in a limited edition with typical passion for working with different materials.
Among other pieces, Local Labels offers Kristyna’s Minimal bracelet collection, made from a material that the designer likes and that is not traditional for jewellery. You can easily wash and wipe the bracelets, they are light and very durable. The idea behind is breaking a circle by a fine cut. ”Before photographing the jewellery, I cut myself when making them which resulted in a nerve injury. I'm going to have a lifetime memory of this collection.”
There are more personal stories behind these beautiful pieces. For example, the Invisible earrings the designer originally designed for herself; she wanted earrings that she “would not know about”. The Sun necklace was designed for a friend, who had the Invisible earrings and desired a necklace that would both match with them and could be also worn with an evening dress. “I took into consideration her strong allergy to various metals and created this option. Once designed, I thought it would be a shame not to offer it further.”
