Judit Patkos is an emerging designer-maker who creates unique, contemporary silver and enamel jewellery featuring geometric shapes, strong colour combinations and graphic patterns. She takes pleasure in discovering new possibilities in working with enamel by creating tactile surface patterns combined with intense colours inspired by abstract forms of art.
In her main ‘Splash!’ Collection she developed a technique where she uses a few layers of jewellery enamel as base coats, and splashes liquid form enamel on top allowing the enamel to form interesting patterns on the base layers. After firing this layer, she colours selected areas using transparent jewellery enamel. For this collection she doesn’t pre-plan the enamel designs, but she develops each piece instinctively while she works on it, gradually building up the pattern layer by layer. This technique guarantees that all her enamel pieces are completely unique artworks that either stand alone or are incorporated into one of her crisp and modern silver jewellery designs. Absolutely no repetitions!
Through her work she aims to promote the beauty of enamelling elevated to an up-to- date, contemporary level, as well as to create modern and wearable jewellery pieces.
