Neshka ( Agnieszka Krusche ), is a native of Kraków, Poland and a graduate of ACAD in Calgary.
Since graduating from the Visual Communications Programme, Neshka has been seamlessly working in Fine Arts and Commercial Design.
Neshka designs jewellery, makes ebony wood wearable pieces and sculptures, also draws and paints.
The jewellery collection consists of sculptural pieces that are both avant-garde and very wearable. The pieces can be considered accessories or Objets d’Art. Neshka works with ebony wood, silver, amber, aquamarine, leather and other natural materials.
Architecture, abstract art and nature are strong inspirations. Simplicity and quality are key, but Neshka’s customers are mostly drawn by the instinctive and artistic nature of the pieces. Neshka’s academic training in design and fine arts is strongly reflected in her object design and jewelry work. She believes that the sharp distinction between fine art and everyday objects is an obsolete idea. Therefore Neshka’s pieces are finely crafted but also instinctive. The pieces are handcrafted not only to meet museum quality, but also to reflect the honesty to raw materials and their beauty. Irregularities of the Baltic Amber, Ebony wood, Aquamarine or other stones used are part of the luxury of the product.
Neshka lives and works in the Foothills of the Rocky Mountains, in Alberta, Canada. Born and raised in a beautiful old city, known for it’s culture, architecture, theatre, universities and visual arts, she now finds beauty in the simplicity of a prairie landscape. The severe climate of the Foothills, and the minimalist aesthetics of the Prairies has given Neshka a new appreciation for the instinctive design process.. Simplicity is her biggest luxury.
