Carina Shoshtary’s jewelry can be characterized as emotional, imaginative and innovative. Shoshtary describes herself as a kind of modern hunter- gatherer as she finds the materials for her artworks in her immediate surroundings. Her choice of materials is often unusual: colorful graffiti from heavily sprayed walls, old bobbin laces found in a cellar, the plastic nets of shower sponges. All her materials have had a previous life, a former use and meaning. With scientific curiosity and sensitive intuition, Shoshtary reveals the potential of these materials.

In Vogue Italia, Paola Aurucci, responds to Shoshtary’s propensity for narrative ‘They are alien jewels in a world that is somewhere between the real and the imaginary, able to make us reflect on the strange journey objects take, inanimate objects with a lot of sentimental value, able to tell us a story, bring up emotions and especially able to unlock memories.‘
