Vaida Suits (b. 1931 in Tallinn)

1956 SAIE

I graduated SAIE cum laude, since 1965 I have been a member of the Artists’ Association. 1956–1966 I worked in ARS as steel engraving specialist, from 1966 as an artist. I have designed jewellery and forms, which I like myself and which hopefully offer something also for other people.

In 1960 I participated in the exhibition of Estonian applied art in Helsinki, in 1966 in the exhibition of the Baltic states in Moscow, in 1966 in the exhibitions of Estonian art in Czechoslovakia, Romania and Yugoslavia. Other exhibitions: national applied art exhibitions 1968–1978: exhibition of jewellery and textiles in 1971, international jewellery exhibition in Jablonec in 1980, personal exhibition in A-Gallery in 2002.- In the book “A-Gallery. Estonian art jewellery gallery for 20 years” (2014)

“The necklace RAIN was made in autumn. In the Summer I was visiting Siberia and travelling along the Yenisei river. The landscape was breathtaking, beautiful and wild. For me the necklace might just be like the rain in Siberia – thick and heavy” – Vaida Suits at the A-Gallery exhibition MEMORY CARDS (2019)
