Born in South Tyrol, Valentina Romen now creates jewelry in her workshops in Milan and Bolzano. After studying art history, she practiced her passion for the most diverse creative possibilities in various fields of the art scene. Curious globetrotter, from 2017 jewelry becomes her purpose in life, always in search of her own form of expression, which is represented in figures and materials. Each piece of the collection comes from her hand, the casting in the wax melting process is entrusted to a specialist, and finally, the finishing touches are made in the studio so that the metal gets the desired surface structure. For Valentina, the piece of jewelry is not just an interplay of materials, but the result of impressions from all over the world.
The jewelry pieces of the Eigenart brand are unique pieces, handmade by Valentina Romen in a very traditional way. They are accompanied by instinctive, experimental inspiration. The gems are born as small wearable sculptures, reflecting Valentina's sense of concise, abstract form, sensitively interpreted. The soft forms (as in the Dancers and Climbers) or the more hard geometric ones (Rough edges and Fluid borders) bring out the power of the chosen materials, bronze or silver, the clear lines vibrate in the light. In the creator's private and professional life, architecture and contemporary art are two constants. Rather by chance, she prefers bronze, the alloy of copper and tin, hard material with warm nuances that reacts to atmospheric influences, air, and humidity.
