Princess Miriam of Ungaria gave a 24-hour interview shortly after she opened her jewelry exhibition. Here's what she said:

"Princess Miriam of Ungaria, how did you start making jewelry?"

– Everything I present in Bulgaria has been done in the last 5 years. Otherwise, I've been in the jewelry business for 25 years. I studied art history for the first time. That's what I really like, but I did not know how to use it in future work.

One Sunday morning, I was at home surrounded by weekly newspapers. There I found a small article on the study of gemology (science of precious and semiprecious stones – b.a.) melting and processing of precious metals. I said, "It looks great, I would be happy to do that!" So I started studying gemology. Over time, I liked it and attracted more attention to this science. I realized that this would be my future.

– What inspires you in your new collections?

"I do not believe in inspiration, I believe in knowledge and work, that is, when you apply knowledge in what you do, you start to create some works, some like them, some do not like them at all, Maybe it happens later. "The truth is that over time, everything begins to happen, what is most necessary is work, a lot of work, sometimes I combine ideas, combine techniques, and get my new collections. knowledge and work, I do not think it is possible to have inspiration.

In addition to making jewelry, you carry many of them. What is your most precious jewel?

"Definitely a necklace I made. The wedding rings are hanging on it – mine and my husband's.

All that is

related to my marriage,

there are many


connection for me

Another of those jewels is a watch left by my husband. This is the most remarkable thing about jewelry that they always carry with them a message. They have a lot of sentimental value, more than anything else.

When you want to say something really special to your partner, you usually donate a jewel. For a birthday or any other occasion, you can always give a clothes, shoes or anything else that the man needs. Perfectly, there is nothing wrong with that, but when you do not just want to please the person with a gift, but also express feelings, then the jewelry store comes.

"When do you wear this necklace with your wedding rings?"

– permanently. It's definitely not so impressive in appearance. This allows me to use it in my everyday life, even with a T-shirt and jeans.

"Does not that bring you back to the sad memories of your husband's loss?"

"No, it is not so. Sentimental jewelry is part of a loved one. Regardless of where the two are, jewelry always connects. It's exactly what impresses me the most on jewelry – sentimental value.

I heard stories from friends about how someone stole their homes. If the thieves took the TV or some other expensive equipment, everyone will regret more of the jewelry. They told me, "Oh, Lord, they raised the rings left by their grandmother." They are not so expensive, but they are extremely valuable to me. Give it to me when I was very young. "There is always a story behind the jewelry.

"You have two children – Boris and Beltran. What are they doing now?

"Both studied at the university, both in London. Boris studied arts at the London University of Arts, and Beltran studied physics at Queen Mary University.

"As soon as Boris teaches arts, does that mean he followed in his footsteps?"

Never know.

My two sons

very similar


Both are fascinated by the exact sciences. Always exchange knowledge and experience with each other in both sciences. They usually help me by giving advice and, above all, opinions. They look at what they like. They are already big, one is 20 and the other is 21, sometimes they ask for advice. Especially when they want to give something good to their friends.

"Do you remember the first time you came to Bulgaria?"

– Clear. It was in 2000. It's been almost 20 years since then. My first impression was before leaving the plane. We were landing and the beauty of nature was visible from the window. I was very impressed with the mountains and the vegetation.

– Do you see any difference in Bulgaria since 2000?

"When I arrived in Bulgaria two years ago for my first jewelry exhibition, I had the opportunity to explore the small streets of Sofia, there are great shops and trendy restaurants. An amazing positive difference 20 years ago.I'm very happy for the development of Bulgaria.I think everyone here is doing a good job and the young generation is incredible.
