The Primitive collection by Karla Olsakova is a tribute to the primitive tribes of central Europe. Inspired by the basics of existence - freedom, simplicity and honesty - and is meant to articulate our primal connection to nature. Two jagged slate pieces in triangle forms, held together by black foam. The slate pieces were made to be wearable sculptures; light, comfortable and of course stunning.
This Primitive collection was nominated in the 2016 “Czech Grand Design” awards for best jewelry.
