Irena Zupan Ambrožič
Irena Zupan Ambrožič has been a designer of jewelery made from precious metals since 1976. She has shown her work at solo and group exhibitions at home and abroad. She is the recipient of the Gold Medal at the Art Olympiad in Padova in 1989. She is also known as a recognized and established artist abroad.

At the very beginning of her creative journey Irena Zupan Ambrožič already drew attention with her original and unique shaping of gold jewelry. Today her knowledge is greater and further developed. The first peculiarity of her jewelry is the gold itself, as it does not retain its characteristic brilliance and shine. The designer alloys the gold herself and with a weighed out ratio of gold, silver and copper, achieves the sought after qualities such as hardness, quality and color. She is also well aware that a metal must retain the qualities which make it precious. She also uses stones which are not always precious or semi-precious. They can be beautiful and naturally smoothed river stones. During the making of new pieces, the designer's sculptural approach is visible. She works pieces of metal applying all the principles of goldsmith's technology: she melts, rolls, draws, hammers and also kneads the gold as if it were clay. So formed pieces of jewelry and sculpture exceed conventional forms and formats. In them we notice stylized shapes which draw from nature or are completely abstract. We also know where she gets her inspiration, because the author always names a piece: earth, fire, air and water – the classical elements give the product more intensive expressive power.
