About

From Urals with love

Hi!
My name is Anna Chernykh and I glad to meet you on my jewelry findings etsy store. All findings provided here, was invented and developed by me. We make it as we are, and there are few people help me in that, mostly of they is family members.

We live and work in Russia, in a small town Kungur in Ural mountains. It is quiet, cozy and beautiful town. We have preserved a large number of old houses, churches and shops. Lots of greenery, a unique Kungur Ice Cave, Belogorsky Monastery, rivers Sylva and Iren - that's just some of the landmarks of my homeland. Every year in June, we held a Festival of Ballooning - "Heavenly Fair". Twenty of floating balloons in the sunset sky - a beautiful sight! If you're ever in our town - write me and I invite you to my home and workshop. You will try to do something by your own hands - that`s would be great souvenir:)

I've been doing jewelry almost all of my adult life. My dad once started to make jewelry out of German silver, nickel silver, and then, when the opportunity arose, of silver. Now it's my life too. In addition to the findings I make jewelry with silver, brass, bronze and glass in lampwork technique. Now we are working together with the whole family - my husband, my mother, my aunt. Hopefully, my children will help us when they grow up.

The idea to making findings appeared in 2009. Since then, I have created 30 collections and my findings are used in different areas of art - puppet making, leather working, clothes, and jewelry making of course.
I create findings by collections, usually they are united stylistically, like "Steampunk" or "Time of knights". Or functionally - "Regaliz elements". In each collection you will find any type of findings to create jewelry - bead caps, toggle clasps, pendants, focal elements. This approach allows the author does not suffer from the selection of findings - just select all the items from one collection and they will be combined with each other. And, of course, no one does not limit you - at your service any of the more than 4,000 items.

An important difference of my findings - is the possibility of modification. Because i use for making findings true metals - brass and bronze (except antique silver - this one is silver-plated brass), this makes possible to patina, sawing, bending, soldering, polishing and so on. For your beaded necklace you need a special color central element? It`s easy! You can even choose tone:) Do you want to use this tubes as a end caps, but it is not right size? Take a hammer and change it! We are almost collaborators in this case :)

And more - just a huge selection of findings. Need the same, but less - almost certainly find. In addition, new collections are published regularly. I'm sure - you can find something suitable to you.

Enjoy your creativity,
Anna

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalised orders

Please drop us a line with a description of what you have in mind and we will consider it. You must have a clear idea of what it is you want and provide us with a sketch or, preferably, a technical drawing. We have a 3D-cutter at our disposal and we make all our custom orders with it's help.

Is it real bronze\brass?

You bet it is. The Russian technical standard of bronze is BrOF 10-1, and it is L68 for brass.

What about this broken antique brass faucet that I own – could you melt it and use as a casting material?

Thank you very much for your considerate offer, but we will have to gracefully decline. The matter of fact is that we are very specific about the origin and the content of the metal that we use in our work (you are going to wear it after all!). Who knows what that ancient faucet brass contains?

Goodness, your metal must contain lots of nasty stuff! Does it?

You will not find a trace of any poisonous or irritant metals in our products; that is no cadmium, no lead, and no nickel. Bronze contains only copper and tin, and brass contains only copper and zinc.

But what about allergies?

Allergies are a very individual thing. Many of our customers can wear our findings on their bare skin for days with no problems. However, some people know what they should avoid with direct skin contact. There are several types of protective metal-coating lacquers to deal with this issue.

Um, what does “antique bronze” stand for?

Well, in our trade, “antique” means “oxidized”. It is a process to make metal look older. The word “antique” has a bit softer and more mysterious ring to it, don’t you think?

Do you offer discounts?

Yes we do!
