For Lea Tudosze a gemstone is not just beautiful to look at, she sees the bigger picture and is fascinated by the whole process.“I am touched by the work of art in its entirety,”enthuses Tudosze.“The emergence of the gemin the depths of the earth, its formation during eruption,the craftsman who polishes it to increase its intensity and finally the jewellery designers who combine the stone with other materials, thus making it a centre piece.” Tudosze works with different independent jewellery designers and the resulting style is anything but mainstream.
