Neringa lets intuition lead her wherever it wants. She says ”there is impulse inside me and deep knowing to start something new, I just follow it and allow things to happen”. That’s how insects appeared in her range of vision. With a background in professional image design and clothing protocol artist transmutes insects into exclusive jewellery with a distinctive style.
