The way to creating sculptures in precious metals and stones began at the State University for Cinema and Television in Sankt-Petersburg. It continued in the studios of Sculptors and painters. My passion belonged from the very beginning to sculpting and figure drawing. In my workshop I’d chiseled torsos in marble, formed them in clay. Then I discovered gold and platinum. And was fascinated.
At the der École de la Bijouterie -Joaillerie de la rue du Louvre in Paris I met the stars of the French jewellery, who revealed for me the excellence of modern and traditional jewellery creation, in particular the plastic art applied on precious metals.
Inspired by these experiences, represents my every piece of jewellery a “sculpture en miniature”, a wearable sculpture.
