Angelina Tsvetkova

About me - autobiography


Angelina Tsvetkova - portrait

I create my jewelry in small collections with a corresponding name. With the name of each collection I give a hint of the direction my inspiration has taken me. I like the metal fretwork with a delicate texture and diamond glow, a parallel between softness and roughness, refinement and volume.

“Nocturne in 925” is my romantic night journey, immersed in the music of Chopin. Delicacy, grace and beauty recreated in metal.

With the brooches from “The man I love” collection I try to express the longing for commitment, drawing inspiration from the music and lyrics of the famous Gershwin song.

My love for wine was expressed in the “Sensitivity” collection.

In “Up close”, through the metal, I get in touch with the geometric diversity of embroidery and the rich hues in the most significant artistic creations of the Bulgarian woman.


The brooches in “From the depths” collection inspired me to write in verses.

In “Angel” I delved into the mysticism of the Greek mythological god Eros.

In every new collection I look for something new and different, not losing the connection with the previous ones.
