Have you ever found an artist on Etsy whose work you loved so much that you knew anything you ordered from his shop would be extraordinary? And then, when your order arrived, it was so much MORE than even you had expected that it took your breath away? That's what happened to me with this emerald ring. I knew from the pictures that it would be beautiful visually, and that Ivan would do his usual professional job of resizing and careful shipping. What I hadn't expected was how amazing this unusual setting would feel to wear. The silver is shaped so organically it almost feels like a natural part of my finger. Thank you, Ivan, for another wonderful piece.

Exquisite. Absolutely perfect. Every tiny stone in this ring is set with incredible precision, and the flowing sterling setting takes their beauty to a whole new level. As always, I am BEYOND impressed with Ivan's skill as an artist and his professionalism as a shop owner. I'm a customer for life!

About

History made today. A jewel, made for history

I come from Thrace.
A land inhabited by people ferocious and disobedient, like Spartacus but also spirited, artistic and poetic like Orpheus.
A home to once greatest goldsmiths in the ancient world, whose mastery is regarded even today as outstanding, detailed and beautifull.
Masters of gold and silver rhytons, masks, jewelry, weapons, armoring, all skillfully decorated and perfectly preserved.
I believe we still possess a small part of this artistry and I do try to use techniques first used by ancient thracians, such as filigree, engraving, enameling, gemsetting, casting...
Through my jewelry i can keep those traditions alive, bring old kings' ornaments and decorations back into people's lives and preserve my forefathers' heritage.
I am proud to be thracian and i hope a small part of the ancient masters still sparks in my works for you to see.

My background includes a degree in history of arts and archeology, which i did in Lyon, France. I was schooled by one of the best university systems in Europe and in the heart of the modern world. Then i went for a gemmological education with the Mineralogy and Gemmology University of Sofia, Bulgaria and AJP and GCS certifications from the best, world-known Gemmological Institute of America.
It was time to start my journey

You are looking at a one-man operation : I do everything from start to finish. Melting and alloying gold and silver, stone setting, carving, engraving, designing, photographing...
I am a self-taught jeweller and I prefer to work the old-fashioned way - by hand instead of what modern factories do - with mills, casters and automated lines. The jewels I make bring me joy and satisfaction, the hours and days I spend making them are filled with passion, excitement and my 100% commitment. Be sure that whatever I do, it is made with care and love.

"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life."
Confucius

That's the sentence that best describes my work. And I recently told to a friend: "If somehow my customers knew how much I enjoy making their jewels, I'm sure they'll charge me money instead of the opposite"

Hello! Welcome to Trencheff! I hope you enjoy the products I have.
Every item is made with care and love, with hours and hours dedicated to every single stone and jewel. I love what I do, and I thank You - my customers, for being able to turn my passion into a viable business. Well, business is not the exact word...more like self sustainable artisan.
Thank you again, and be sure that every product is made by hand and with heart.

I absolutely love the designs I produce. Each one is made with different materials so there may be variations in the coloring or the strenght of the color and brightness, but that's the beauty of the natural gems we deal with. :)
