Ladies and gentlemen,
Welcome to the second Sunday Store of the month, where we’ll be presenting to you Ivana Martic and her TOTA handcrafted art jewellery line!

I love the natural texture of these jewels. Woods such as walnut, ash, rose, poplar and oak are the main materials – and source of inspiration – that Ivana uses in her work. The beauty and the rich structure of wood are emphasized through the color and the handcrafted surfaces, all for the applied and decorative composition of the necklace.
Clear lines, simple forms and balanced contrasts give TOTA items elegance and style, proper of Nordic designs. All the pieces could be seen as small sculptures, as the treatment of each element connects both design and art experience.
Every necklace is handmade, in Ivana’s family carpenters workshop, where she creates them together with her father. All the elements are tied by eco leather cordons, whose colors are changeable to adapt to the wooden element’s tones.
What is TOTA’s philosophy of creation? The simple pleasure of creating, as well as a pure aesthetic language. TOTA items are offered in museum shops, concept and fashion stores.
I hope you like them as much as I do!
