"I came across jewellery-making accidentally, while I was in France. For two years I worked with Jean Luco Papignon, a designer of fantasy jewellery. Here in Slovakia, fantasy jewellery is not as specifically defined or as appreciated as it is in France. In Paris, a mecca of fashion, fantasy jewellery is in fashion," Rusnaková told daily SME.
Rusnaková has worked with Slovak fashion designer Lea Fekete, a couple of Czech designers, and a Paris embroidery company, where they attach her pieces to fabrics that are then sold to fashion houses like Dior or Chanel.
