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.
