Welcome to Eleven Eleven Jewelry.
Welcome to 11:11 Jewelry, a full line of unique and one-of-a-kind women's jewelry. Eleven Eleven focuses on lamp working- beads and sculptural work, metalsmithing, and lapidary work.
Head designer and artist, Dobrila Pintar, began her fashion career as a senior buyer for an international department store. After gaining years of experience, she decided to create her own line of one-of-a-kind accessories. In 2007, she found a new home in Lillstreet Art Center, where she gained many invaluable skills and techniques- lampwork, lapidary, painting, ceramics, and metalsmithing. Dobrila's passion for glass beads grew and she was asked by her peers to become an instructor to educate others. Since 2010, Dobrila has been teaching a variety of glass bead classes at Lillstreet.
A European native, Dobrila was honored by being asked to exhibit her collection at the Slovenian Embassy infront of international diplomats at the 2012 European Union Anniversary Convention. Also, she has been accepted to and displayed at the One of A Kind show in Chicago, IL for the past 4 years.
