The curiosity led motivation has driven Pagil Blaja to collections of laborious detail and experimentation.
Knowing at the heart of what you wear is passion for conceptual design and handcrafted excellence, a piece of art which has gone through endless hours of workmanship and intricate detailing yet manifested in simple and bold jewelry: an archetype of your outlook and attitude. Simply put, less is more.
