TREES, a collection of jewellery inspired by nature and designed by Inita Straupe. 15% of the income from this collection is donated to the children of the Zvannieki house. The collection is based on wood – its laconic, yet rich lines of branches, are intertwined with spring-light earrings, gorgeous necklaces, and bracelets. The collection is designed by Inita Straupe. “As a child, I loved watching the silhouettes of trees against the sky. My grandfather was a scientist – a tree breeder – so it was important for me to know the name of a tree when I looked at it. I drew trees and their leaves and tried to show the diversity and variety in the world of trees. Later, when I got into graphics, the silhouette lines of trees were brought to life in my ink works, and I love the representation of trees in other artists’ work. When making jewellery, I would come back to nature again and again. I start my morning by looking at a tree, the pattern of its branches against the sky, this has given me the inspiration for this collection.” A tree is an ancient and widespread symbol that can be found in different cultures and religions around the world. The symbol is portrayed as a tree with branches pointing towards the sky. It is interpreted as the cycle of life, growth, and development. A tree can also be associated with a world that extends from the past to the future, and its branches pointing towards the sky can symbolise dreams, hopes and understanding. It also symbolises strength, endurance, and stability. In this collection you will find silver and bronze bracelets, silver earrings for women, bronze earrings with gold-plated hooks, bronze and silver necklaces, silver pins and silver dress studs for men. Jewellery is also available in red gold or yellow gold. The jewellery of this collection is ideal as a gift for both women and men. It can be a gift for graduation, wedding day, anniversary, or any special occasion. Jewellery is a perfect gift to give to your loved ones.
