About the Designer

 

Marcin Nowak

Passionate about designing jewellery, winner of many awards in Poland and abroad. Graduate of the Jewellery Department of the Academy of Fine Arts (AFA) in Łódź,  he was already leading classes with students in the Computer Aided Jewellery Design workshop at the AFA in Łódź  in the fifth year of his degree. In 2013 he started his doctorate in jewellery design using the most modern technologies. The topic of his paper was "Openwork jewellery created on the basis of parametric design and generative techniques". He has been passionate about jewellery since childhood, as his family had a strong tradition of jewellers.

Since 2006 he has been working with the CAD/CAM computer system for designing jewellery in 3D. He designs jewellery both for people who value individuality and originality and for companies looking for exclusive items for their employees or VIP clients. His achievements include many projects:  rings, specifically engagement rings, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, pendants, signet rings, medals, cuff links, lapel pins and many more.

Examples of jewellery designed on special order are shown in the page CREATE WITH THE DESIGNER.
