When Imantas was 9 years old he wanted to be as cool as the glam rock stars he had seen on TV. So one day he decided to make a necklace for himself. His dad was a big antiques collector and he asked him for an old coin. It was an old worthless German coin. So he drilled out a hole and attached it to a silver chain. That was my cool necklace. All the boys in the playground wanted to try it on.
In 2006 Imantas moved to London and began to make master models for designers and high street stores like Turnbull & Asser, Vivienne Westwood, Agent Provocateur, Paul Smith, Matthew Williamson, Lulu Guinness, Ted Baker, Karen Millen and others. Over the years he was constantly working on his own designs and ideas. He came up with idea to start his own jewellery label and decided to move forward when Fauxward was born.
