The artist Dovilė Bernadišiūtė was born in Vilnius but is now based in Stockholm. Her jewellery is made through a process of casting and imprinting interior and exterior surfaces. She wants to establish a connection between the human body and the space around it.
Bernadišiūtė has studied jewellery and design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam, and the Konstfack University for Arts, Crafts and Design, Stockholm, where she is also working in the Research Lab for jewellery. Her work has been featured in numerous prestigious exhibitions in the Netherlands, Sweden and other European countries. Her jewellery always reflects through the special crafting process a specific place and preserves memories, even if the place itself vanishes – which gives her works also a political significance. Each piece is therefore an individual cast of a place and memory and unites the wearer with them.
