Despite the rich autumnal tones on tap, jewelry innovation seems to be taking on the bold green hues of summer. These exotic leaf and pod accessories, created by Bulgarian textile artist Ceca Georgieva, are fit for a woodland nymph. After more than a year of email exchanges, I was treated to her latest green jewelry experiments, a fresh discovery in a land more accustomed to Thracian gold ornaments and ancient leafy crowns.

Georgieva is a Bulgarian national treasure who works pretty much on her own to promote environmental art and green design. We have been in dialogue about exciting new ways to bring awareness to green initiatives in her homeland (where I now spend a portion of my year), as well as the European art scene at large.

Georgieva magically assembled her pieces from fresh leaves, grasses, and pods gathered from Sofia’s Mount Vitosha.

Her work previously entailed figurative sculpture crafted out of biodegradable materials like dried burdock, native vegetation, and even packed snow orbs. A soft-spoken but incredibly persistent person, she gave me a tiny red oak to plant upon my arrival in Sofia last May—a sign of friendship and loyalty for years to come.

I love these pure and simple pieces that Georgieva has magically assembled out of fresh leaves, grasses, and pods gathered near her studio at the base of Sofia’s Mount Vitosha. They speak to the essence of green accessorizing in a way that highlights the jewels that exist in our immediate sphere.
In a country that is forging a new path in global design and fashion, it is exciting to see artists and designers launch into bold ideas and concepts inspired by the simplicity of nature.

Artboom: Celebrating Artists Mid-Century, Mid-Career

April 30th - May 8, 2016, bga, Wilton, Connecticut

"The Iron Curtain,"Ceca Georgieva,


"The results are contemplative and thought provoking. Ceca Georgieva’s sculpture, The Iron Curtain, reflects her life in a

Communist and post-Communist state."

Artboom: Celebrating Artists Mid-Century, Mid Career. This year’s exhibition brings together “baby boomers,” 33 artists born between 1946 and 1964, who are mid-way into their lives of making art. We’ve asked them to provide us work that is reflective; work that tells us where they’ve come from or where they hope to go; work that illustrates influences, roads not taken, and the like. Or, work that reflects on being a boomer, perhaps— part of the wealthiest, most active, and most physically fit generation up to that time and the first to grow up genuinely expecting the world to improve. It was a generation that created music and literature in the 60s and art — including fiber art — to describe the change this generation was determined to bring about.
The results are contemplative and thought provoking. Ceca Georgieva’s sculpture, The

Iron Curtain, reflects her life in a Communist and post-Communist state. Karyl Sisson’s In Stitches, harkens back to her family’s past in New York’s Fashion industry — her grandmother made hats and beaded bags in New York’s lower East side; her mother spent 25 years as a buyer for the specialty store Bonwit Teller. For Lewis Knauss, this stage of his career means seeing unrealized ideas (sketches, notes, photos) and failed work in a new light. “I am happier with chaos,” he says, “the way I need to give up a bit more control of the outcome, flaws and in nature, the beauty of disaster. I guess it is acknowledging the approaching wall. I enjoy working at my pace rather than a deadline enforced one, allowing things to just happen, evaluating the outcomes as I finish each work. Keeping and discarding.”https://www.facebook.com/notes/browngrotta-arts/seen-at-artboom-debra-sachs-among-her-six-of-sculptures/10153402449481831
