People say that Estonian art and design is quiet and poetic, black or white, melancholic and dramatic, maybe that is why Lisa is doing the opposite. She likes to impress with colours. Her main jewellery series consist of a huge colour palett which is continuously growing. Another characteristic is her simple and minimalistic form language, geometrical and architectural shapes, which goes still well with the body and face.
