Fish princess brooch pendant. Silver, black pearls, mammoth tusk. Jewellery designer Guntis Lauders

Latvian jewellery designer Guntis Lauders
Born 31 May 1965 in Riga, Guntis Lauder is a talented and creative Latvian jewellery designer. The artist’s handwriting is instantly captured in the details, forms and materials used. To achieve this, the jewelry artist masterly uses such classic jewelry technology as inlay, engraving on a mammoth tusk and an ebony tree. Also, especially difficult soldering, casting and forging. Traditionally, the designer uses silver, mammoth tusk, garnets, green amethyst, pyrite, agate, smoky quartz, ebony, black and white pearls, topaz and more.

“I would like my jewelry to be worn and looked at for another hundred years, passed from generation to generation. Once, in the distant future, the ring I created will receive a new breath, and some successor to one of my clients will wear it. This explains the choice of materials – silver, gold, precious stones, ebony, mahogany, mammoth tusk, coconut bark, corals, pearls and amber. They can withstand time, do not fade, and will not lose their value. Probably, such solidity is in my Latvian blood. And, on the contrary, in the creative process of the birth of my ideas, I do not like any restrictions.”
