Anastasia's Profile

About

A major inspiration for Anastasia’s jewelry is water, in all its different forms. “I try to depict its nature, to present it in hard metal but keep the attributes,” she says.
“Water is so beautiful, so natural and soothing. Water is what we’re made of, mostly, and the whole planet, too.”
Her water jewelry is a kind of tribute to this universal substance. “You can’t really possess water, but my jewelry allows you to carry it with you. It’s a comforting object that brings you closer to nature, to this thing that’s so essential.”
Anastasia’s designs are influenced by architecture, especially the pronounced, ingenious curves of Gaudi and the art noveau style. She also draws from a variety of other cultures and historical periods, giving her work an eclectic, multicultural dimension.

In her native Russia Anastasia studied art for years and later worked as a graphic designer. After moving to the U.S., she discovered jewelry making, which struck her as the ideal way to combine her artistic side with her passion for hands-on craftsmanship.
The seed for each of her pieces is found in research—poring over slides and books, sketching and photographic studies. Then, with an idea firmly fixed, she carves a model from special jeweler’s wax, using dental tools and other fine instruments. It’s a labor-intensive process that presents Anastasia with non-stop artistic challenge. It’s a process she loves, though, from one minute to the next; and the final piece reveals how much the work truly pays off.
