"Atelier Mazreku" in Prishtina is a fifth-generation silversmith originally trained by an old Jewish master. I love his old filigree & gold-plated items.

In a world where corporations have taken over and influence what we eat, how we dress, what we watch, what we listen to and what we read, finding something that is different may seem difficult. Sameness has become a feature of our modern life. Yet, we still come across people who have decided to follow their own path and who, in doing so, enrich our lives.

One such person is Genc Mazreku of Jewelry Atelier Mazreku. A fifth-generation silversmith, his initial training took place in the workshop of an old Jewish master. His skills were refined in his grandfather’s shop who specialized in filigree work.

Today, the atelier acts as a bridge between the traditional and the modern. Situated on a side road in the area known as “Te Plepat”, on the way to the old market (tregu), you can feast your eyes on antique jewelry which Genci’s grandfather made, or you can opt for made-to-order pieces. His skill lies in his ability to turn someone else's idea into a reality.

My all-time favourite pieces of his are the old, filigree items, some of which are gold-plated. For those of you who prefer the more sculptural pieces, you should definitively consider the Illyrian helmet ring. Just remember that you do need to order well in advance. The craftsman will not be rushed in his artwork.
