Seeing extraordinary in ordinary is really not common thing in everyday life. The more you get your self into things that are meaningful you become your product, hand crafting is always unique simply by reproducing your emotions to your creation. Emotion guided work leads to best result that could be produced with knowledge that we posses and reproduce it in any given form.
For Tanja artistic skills are with her from very early age of her life, as a child she liked to draw allot “drawing portraits with charcoal was really natural thing to reproduce on paper for me”. She was noticed by her professor of art and she took part in different contests both small and big scale on different topics, witch also resulted with a great qualification of her drawings.
As life goes on by its pathway she find her self interested in hand crafting “I was amazed by hand made products that are made out of leather so I went in quest to get knowledge of that type hand craft” and by her self she started to learn from what ever she has seen and get hands on. Mr. Tiljak was her inspiration and guide for working with leather… Meanwhile this doesn’t stop there soon she expanded her choice of material to work with “silver and semiprecious stones soon becomes my field of interest” thanks to Milica Popović Bubanja she was led to be fully motivated and inspired with warm sincere feeling, witch ended with Tanja signing in one of the workshops held by Milica. “In workshop I meet with one of technique for processing silver that left me speechless, and soon I find my self attached with it”. “Also I must mention Audrey Kawasaki, because she left significant influence on me with her art work pictures”. Inspiration comes itself from things that we consume. We are products of everything that we adopt from our surrounding, its reproduced and re-invented with every product, or behave patent that we express.
What amazed me within her work is that not only that she make a great eye catching jewellery but she support every piece that is made by depth of background meaning. Every piece has its own story and author is the narrator so you can get clear line for its origin and urge for coming to life. Every thing is meaning-full and sens-full… See for your self in just few of many selected pictures(creations).
