Often, the world's perception of jewelry is that of a surplus brought to the human body, with a value proportionally to that of the material used. Raluca challenged this point of view and brought the alternative of a jewel as an art object, having an artistic understanding, a concept and a message.
She always had a preference for ceramic materials, perhaps due to the irreversible transformation of the material from one state to another: once it has acquired a certain form, it cannot return to what it was before. She combines seemingly fragile ceramic material, with the hardness of metal or the warmth of a textile material, to give form to compositional experiments.
Every one of her jewels is a translation of personal experiences into porcelain. Raluca sees the results of these experiences as a legacy, a proof of her existence conquering time.
