About Risza Jewellery

She was inspired by watching traditional Timorese silversmiths making jewellery, and started to experiment and teach herself. She has also learnt various techniques from different teachers around the world, the learning journey continues.

Risza's work is mostly influenced by Timorese ceremonial and traditional objects, which have stories and meaning behind each of them.
