The “Landscapes and Waters” jewellery collection is inspired by contour lines used on a map to show height above sea level and depth of water. The parts are cut out with laser and riveted together with silver. Since titanium anodizing is done by hand, each piece of jewellery is slightly different.

Maarja Niinemägi obtained her MA in jewellery at the Estonian Academy of Arts. She made her exchange studies at Trier University of Applied Sciences in Germany, where she developed her skills in engraving and designing precious stones. Her work is highly valued and has been acquired for the collections of the Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design, the Marzee Gallery along with private collections in Estonia and abroad.

The colour plays a crucial role in my creation. I use materials just like colours to give the jewellery an abstract form and an idea of colour in space.
