Natasha Collis (UK)
International jewellery designer
Janyce Erlich (USA)
Natasha gained a First in Fine Art Painting at The Slade, one of the most prestigious art schools in Europe and went on to win the acclaimed traveller award to study in NYC. From here transformed her unique sense of form and colour harmonies into Jewellery design and now sells her designs around the world in the US, London, Japan, Austria and Spain and opened her first boutique here in Ibiza in September 2009.
Inspired handmade jewellery with soul
Hand crafted at Natasha’s stunning studio, no two pieces are entirely alike and each gem, precious stone, diamond and metal is chosen for its unique quality and colour. Each solid 18 ct gold nugget is individually and carefully
hammered, and then meticulously matched with gems to make the delicate pieces that are much coveted for their intricate design and magical spectrums of colour. The pieces reflect Natasha’s inspiration from the Balearic artisan earthiness, stunning landscapes and Ibiza’s kaleidoscope of natural light. Natasha has designed unique Christmas edition pieces only available on Ibiza. They are a simple, elegant expression of her style.
Janyce Erlich has a Masters Degree in Fine Art Photography from The George Washington University in Washington, DC and is a university professor of photography for more than 20 years. She is an accomplished and successful artist/photographer with a long list of exhibitions, grants, private and public collectors in the U.S.
Janyce Erlich presents “Mystical Menagerie”
“Like a glimpse into the “spirit world”, photographs of animals are transformed into colored iconic images in Janyce Erlich’s imagination. By adding hand drawing and coloring over her
own original images, her digital photos of animals become abstracted mystical symbols with a dream-like hallucinatory quality.”
