Barbora Dzuráková studied history of art and practiced applied arts : Glass + Jewellery at Academy of Fine Arts and Design (AFAD) in Bratislava in Slovakia. After her graduation from Trier University of Applied Sciences in Germany at Gemstone and Jewellery Department in 2012 Dzuráková started to work as an assistant of Estela Saez in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Five months later I did follow an internship at Jewellery Studio of Estela Saez in Amsterdam. I’ ve been working for her as studio assistant for 2 years. I focused on process of finalizing semi-precious stones and silver. I managed an administration tasks and I helped with building-up several jewellery exhibitions.
In 2014 I opened my jewellery studio in Steenenkamer (Oost Nederland) where I live. Normally after I return home from my job I go on with jewellery in my studio. I’m pasioned about making jewellery. I use sterling silver – and gold on request.
I’m inspired by nature. I believe that the most simple form is beautiful.
Since 2017 I work in a local biological greenhouse. It’s a precise work and because a I grew up in a family with vegetable garden of 1100 m2- it seems something very natural to do. I enjoy working with plants. It is fascinating. Doing a good job gives me an energy, whatever it is about.
I like to think that every woman who wear my jewellery believe in an artisanal craftsmanship and its dignity.
Barbora Dzuráková took for 4 years a part ( since 2012) in Plateaus Jewellery Project: P. C. Domingues, K. Dettar, E. Tarín, that has shown her jewellery in Spain. Only shortly after exhibiting in Poland, Czech Republic, Germany, Netherlands and USA.
