My name is Olga and I design and make all jewelry in my shop. All pieces are created entirely by hand in my studio in the beautuful country side of Hillsborough, North Carolina. I mainly use sterling silver and occasionally solid gold. As you browse through my shop, you will see that stones are essential to my designs - they are souls of my work!
Thank you for stopping by and let me know if I can be of assistance in any way.
Have a beautiful day! ❤
Olga

P.S. All my jewelry is gift wrapped and ready to give.

Thank you for visiting my Etsy shop!
My name is Olga and I design and make jewelry for this shop.

When I first came to the United States from Russia in 2002 I discovered a new life for my son and me. We found a community on the Monterey Peninsula that we could call home - an inspiring place surrounded by beautiful nature. For me, I have felt an even greater sense of fulfillment and pleasure from my new home because I do not forget where I came from - I do not forget the world that my parents introduced to me - on camping trips deep in the forest, fishing on the small lake near our town, and farming our own fruit and vegetables. Working hard, having little, and not being consumed with physical possessions and technology as a child, I found enjoyment in the gifts that our earth has given us. Simple things, like watching patterns that insects make skimming the waters of a pond, or feeling the texture of a beautiful tree's bark under my fingers, or inhaling an aroma of a wild flower on a summer day made me feel happy and connected to the earth. Ever since, I have always been inspired and moved by the textures, colors and shapes that nature creates so effortlessly. Nature truly is the ultimate Artist and my limitless source for design inspiration. I lean toward natural, organic shapes and lines, translating them into sculptural jewelry.

Having passion for stones, I have been collecting the most beautiful, unique and rare ones from all over the world. Many of them are collector quality specimens. In my jewelry making process, I let the 'personality' of each stone guide me to the creation of the piece around it. Following my intuition, I create a piece, entirely by hand in my studio. I use a fabrication technique the ancient jewelers used to construct their pieces. Sheets of metal are cut with a special jeweler’s handsaw, then the different parts of the design are soldered together. I fabricate and forge my pieces out of sterling silver and gold to create one of a kind, unique wearable art jewelry. The techniques I use allow me to incorporate different kinds of metals into one piece. As a final step, each piece of artwork is signed with my makers mark.

I hope that through my work you, too, can feel happy and connected to the beauty of Nature, of the Universe.
