" I am a contemporary, visual artist. I love to experiment using objects as coins, old torn wall papers, gold plate, newspapers and more. My art is not mainstream, sometimes edgy- Pop Art . Art is my life""It is my ambition to creatively experiment in diverse techniques, endlessly attempting to create new expressions. I therefore allow myself to experience the many facets of art. Art is my life."

In a nutshell -"ART IS MY LIFE"- Christina Jarmolinski
To my Art Jewelry: I am a visual artist. In 1992 I traveled to India, studied gemology in Poona, at the Institute for Gemology. It was there I found my love for semi-precious stones. I love what nature has created. I collected a huge array of stones offered in India, had some certified and the others I bought with my knowledge and "gut-feeling." The president of the Institute said it was due to my artist eyes, I could "see" the life of the stones. He encouraged my endeavor to design with beads India had to offer. (picture will follow). I was also introduced to a "stone guru," who taught me the quality and the essence of these gifts of nature. I learned the traditional beading style of the Indians and Tibetan cultures. I went on designing necklaces with these attributes in a contemporary-ethnic fashion not forgetting the stones origins. Since then I have collected and designed. Many of my pieces were bought internationally and sought after due to their originality.
God’s precious gift to our world is nature. Nature = stones, minerals, gems............
My jewelry was featured last fall in Pulse Magazine of Naples and is shown at Petunia's of Naples and in Grandeur at Gannon's of Fort Myers, Florida.
