Artist Statement

Militsa is an artist, designer and maker based in Glasgow. She creates jewellery and objects as a means of communicating her thoughts and feelings and draws inspiration mainly from her surroundings and personal experiences. In her practice she explores various concepts that intrigue her, while triggering her creativity by experimenting with different materials. Through the use of discarded materials and found objects, she challenges the notion of value in materials and poses the question of what is considered precious and why.
