1. Who is the girl behind Rabenda?
A dreamer. An aspiring architect. A creative person :)
My name is Ana Stanoevska and I am a happy artist from the planet Earth. A lover of beer and comic books.
2. Why did you choose the name Rabenda? What’s its significance?
ラベンダー色 ; Rabenda; lavender – probably the only thing that influences me positively as the making of jewelry does.
3.What is the story that Rabenda tells?
It is a story called Keep the child in yourself! And read the Little Prince every now and then and enjoy the everyday things!
4. How did the idea of making jewelry become tangible and what was the first thing you made and showed to the public?
Following the stories told by Eva Thissen’s creations and later watching my VIKI work, I got inspired and somehow I always believed I could do that. The Faculty, the “not having time” and similar excuses hindered me for ages, until I stopped and asked myself: “OK, are you happy now?”
I’d love to thank my family for the support and for always encouraging me with my crazy ideas :)
5. What motifs appear the most in your jewelry and where do you seek inspiration from?
I’d say vintage motiffs, probably because I find myself in some old-fashion waters :)
6. What materials and techniques you use the most in your work?
I work with polymer clay and sometimes I combine screen printing with acrylic colors.
7. What are the most wanted / the most sold pieces?
All of my pieces are unique and one of a kind :)
But if we count in the messages I receive on jewelry, it turns out that this set above was the most wanted. I received many messages from buyers asking for the same.
8. What kind of jewelry is the one that you make with immense pleasure?
To be honest, there are times when after making a piece I become doubtful saying to myself: “Is this for me or is it for sale?” :)
Mostly I let go of them! I adore all of my book markers.
And my absolute favourite is this one.
9. Your idols?
Oh, there are too many….Mainly Еva Thissen, Eddie Vedder and Sou Fujimoto!
10. What are your plans for Rabenda in the future?
I’d say “Times are hard for dreamers” but I’ll do my best to treasure the dream!
Dream on girl!
