Denisa originally from Slovakia studied goldsmithing with a focus on traditional jewelry techniques for four years. She supplemented her skill with an additional BA Honours degree in 3Ddesign in Scotland. There she experimented with a wide range of jewelry-atypical materials-acrylics, porcelain, and wood. After graduating with a first-class degree, she moved to Zanzibar, Tanzania, and worked as a jewelry tutor and designer for a women empowerment project. Denisa is currently living in Washington DC.
