‘aka jewellery’ is a studio brand based on two concepts: - structure (the arrangement of and relations between the parts or elements of something complex) and functionality (the quality of being suited to serve a purpose well) which combine to create minimal aesthetic forms. Essential to Ausra’s work is the idea of harmony with the body: the jewelry must not disturb the line of the human form, instead of working with this base to enhance and extend its aesthetic lines.
The most minimal details have a maximum function. The result is an immaculate, non-iterative design that functions as an object when not worn, like a small architectural sculpture.
My latest work has a very strong modularity aspect. Every earring can be worn in multiple ways by combining different designs which let the wearer be the creator. I explore new ways of earring construction, and ways those constructions can be worn.
