Sydney based designer Marta Niegowska had a budding urge to create, so she took on the age old form of moulding wax into shapes to form her unique unisex jewellery collections that make the label Bilingual. After exploring a range of concepts and ideas, it was the series of interlocking silver rings made by Marta for her partner to wear while he was away, that got people talking and the designer soon found herself taking orders for colleagues and friends. She soon launched Bilingual at the Powerhouse Museum Youngblood Design Markets during Sydney Design Week in 2005. Marta explores various ideas through her pieces that induce humour or provoke thought. More than just a beautiful adornment, wearers of Marta’s designs are drawn to her concepts as much as her craftsmanship and she designs to open people’s minds to imagine what jewellery can be. Each collection of locally handmade rings, earrings, bangles, neckpieces and wedding bands engage the wearer with the symbolic nature of her work. More than ever before gents wedding rings, like the ladies, symbolise love, committment and personal taste, they must be something loved and cherished. Afterall, it will be worn for a lifetime to come. All Bilingual silver jewellery is made from 100% recycled Australian silver.
