i'm an artist. i handcraft unique maps of the world (country or region) studded with genuine Swarovski crystals: a mesmerizing decoration gem for your home, office or business to showcase your world travels,
international presence or global reach. handmade. customizable. unique. a true conversation piece. Born and raised in Poland's communist regime it was next to impossible to travel.
And when I could I went everywhere. And the journey continues. The Crystal Map celebrates the freedom to travel, to see different places, to experience different cultures. Above all it celebrates the idea
of One World. I'm an avid traveler who has visited 138 countries to date (and lived in 9). I speak English, French, Spanish and Polish (also a little Greek , Thai, Arabic and good understanding of Portuguese).
To commemorate my journey I wanted to do something special. And I did. A map of the world contours on a wall studded with authentic Swarovski crystals to showcase all the places I've been to.
And so the idea of the artwork was born. It is 100% customizable in shape, size, color, crystal color and size. It can be a travel map on home's wall, or places the customers or patients come from at a
local dental clinic or merchants (because they treat each patient or customer like a diamond). It could show locations of hotels, or restaurant, or place one dreams of visiting or having family in. I like storytelling. My Crystal Map is my own story.
I welcome every opportunity for future owners of The Crystal Map to tell their stories now too.
