Dorota Kos: DK Collection Amber & Wood Jewelry Launches

Inspired by her native environment, the Northern sea coast of Poland, artist Dorota Kos brings together two elements that blend the past with the present.

This collection is pure harmony with a nearly utopian feel to it. Please, stop by & view Dorota’s artistry. She is truly an original.
