Agata Bieleń is a raw contemporary jewelry brand representing statement pieces that are easily recognized by subtle geometrical lines and lightweight elegance. The main inspiration for her work is a straight line –  the basic unit of geometry, length without extension, straight stretched between two points. Formed in space turns into an object.

First jewelry pieces were created in 2011 as a school project at the design lab of FAFA. In a short period of time after graduation, her first collection has resulted in debut exhibition at well-known Yes Gallery.

Since 2011 Agata Bieleń  has released several collections of jewelry exploring this main motive – the line – broken, bent and bonded in space creating three-dimensional forms. She creates small sculptures that live in close proximity to the body. Their usability is a priority. The forms are light, delicate, and despite the strong geometrical shapes –  comfortable and functional, with clear and raw simplicity.
