I am a self-taught wire artist based in the north-western end of Russia.
I am 26 and I still don’t know what I am going to be when I “grow up”, I hope I will make a decision some day.
I love creating jewelry with a twist, the one that looks whimsical and tells a story.
What are those stories? Well it is quite difficult to say in a sentence or two. But surely they are of good old days, of nature that is timeless or even of characters that do not seem to belong to the reality we live in - thos of elves and fairies and other supernatural creatures.
As a designer I like the basic forms to be quite plain and laconic but on this base I try and make the item that looks intricate and whimsical and with a bit of fancy in it.
I often do not know how the thing I am currently making is going to look at the end of the day. I quite rarely make sketches for this matter. Sometimes it takes a couple of month to figure out what to make out of the diverse intermediate pieces of wire that I have once twisted and now need to put together.
