Designer Spotlight: Lidija Redovnikovic


A brief story of what you do and why you do it.

I make copper, brass and silver handmade jewelry. It is not only my work but also my true passion and lifestyle.

How did you get into jewelry design?

I started making jewelry spontaneously when I was a child and over the years I've developed different techniques for making my jewelry.

What makes your collection unique?

Each piece is 100% handcraft by me and is one of a kind. I like to combine copper and brass. The two metals make beautiful contrast between the dark brown color of copper, which I oxidize by hand and the golden color of brass.

What are your inspirations?

I find inspiration in everything that surrounds me, mostly nature in all its forms.

How are you making a difference in your life?

I feel truly blessed to be able to work and create something that makes me so happy.

What's something unusual about you that makes you “you”?

I'm a very open-minded person and I see things for what they are, out of the frames set up by different influences through life.

What's the biggest struggle in running your jewelry business like a business?

The biggest struggle in running a handmade jewelry business is that it is very difficult with a small collection of handmade jewelry to compete with industrial made jewelry that comes in thousands. But my biggest advantage is that I always keep friendly relations with my customers and they feel really appreciated. I also do custom orders and that is what keeps my customers coming back.
