Bio

Born in Piatra Neamt, Romania, in 1996, Sabina Dragusanu graduated from Central Saint Martins, UAL, London, in 2017 with a BA degree in Jewellery Design. Sabina’s craftsmanship turns away from conventional jewellery materials. Instead she appreciates the beauty of nature and constantly looks for ways to express that. Taking inspiration from her Romanian background, she reinterprets today’s society in an original way. Using simple, yet old and traditional techniques, she creates pieces of jewellery through working with wood, fabric, rope and occasionally, metal. Her style is minimal, reminding us, through its simplicity and primitive-like techniques, of our ancestors.
