Mystical collections

  • • As a teenager, Janja used to sell her handmade beads
  • • She studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague
  • • She uses the lost wax casting technique

Janja Prokić's jewellery pieces seem to emerge from a natural dreamland; even the simplest ones look like they come from a mystical creature. The award-winning jewellery maker Janja admits that dreams and nature inspire her a lot, along with her personal life. "Everything I make is based on what I am going through at the time. My collections are sort of diaries," she says. She took a meandering path to jewellery making, starting out as a painter, then turning to sculpture, before finally graduating as a jewellery maker. Essentially, she is characterised by a determination to do whatever she wants. She loves to travel and move to different places – always with her tools packed, of course. "That's one of the aspects I love about my craft: you can pack it into a suitcase."

Homa amethyst feather ring

The Homa collection was inspired by the culture, myths and rituals of New Guinea, the bird of paradise island. This ring was handcrafted in white gold using the lost wax method, and was set with an amethyst, emeralds, diamonds and a sapphire. Janja's interest lies in Shamanism, folklore and fine art, and she believes in the strength of symbols – eyes and feathers in this case – and the protective powers of stones.
