    About

    Found my soul work at 35

    Today I can't believe that I lived to 35 and did not even think and try to make jewelry. Oh no, of course I did a lot of things just around it. In my family it was impossible not to start to create just anything. Because all my relatives (women) were and are talented in something hand making. My mom was knitting amazing sweaters all my childhood for me and my two sisters.

    One of my grannies, my dad mom, she was a pediatrician. She embroidered fantastic tablecloths, napkins, collars also. Violets and pansies were her favorites. She also made fabulous laces (I use some of them in my brooches and necklaces sometimes). She died before I was born but my dad has kept the shelly box with her creatures, bright blue beret with two broken ostrich feathers and small green bone hand fan. As far as I remember now I loved to scrutinize and put on all this treasures for hours.

    Another granny was unique in sewing. Just after war she sewed for all fashion women of our town. She made magical things from very simple and not even bright soviet fabrics. It wasn't her main job, just for her soul. She managed directors of shops during the day. And sewed dresses, jackets, coats, skirts at night... She taught me to sew. And she taught me to be perfectly accurate. Even if no one will see the backside and inside it should always be faultless.

    Some years ago I've found very old document confirmed that my great-grandmother in 1918 got the gratitude for "talent in making dolls" for charity foundation in Ukrain and also that "she not only highly qualitatively created dolls but also invented new techniques in this process". Marvelous!

    So you see this luggage gave me no any chance to pass by the handmaking. But it seems to me now I was a bit like a sleeping Beauty from very strange fairytale. I did not make jewelry until my husband has gone. Even as hobby. He was my prince vice versa :) he awaked me by his leaving. After divorce I went to live and work in Moscow as a business trainer. It was my main job for 12 years before.

    But Moscow first of all became the place of my start as a master of small and beautiful things. I was very lucky! My boss, colleagues-trainers and friends helped me to believe and gave a great support! They admired, praised, encouraged and bought my first things.

    I make jewelry and brooches for 7 years now. I've found myself, my soul work. I came back to my Novgorod, born second son and happy to make what I really love. I see all my creatures live very long and gift happiness, beauty and luck to women who wear them. And that's enough to be really happy!

    I gave name BoChicca to my jewelry. Who is Bochicca? Once upon a time one interesting and not well known god visited people. People say that he came along by the rainbow and taught us all crafts. He had a wife. She was as beautiful as scandalous. And Bochicca turned her into the moon. She is still beautiful but very far. So everyone could see her beauty and not suffer because of her unbearable nature :) I've decided why not to give his name to creatures he taught us to make.

    Shipping
    ★ SHIPPING ★

    I ship from Russia via Russian Post in 1-2 business days upon receipt of your payment (usually it takes around 1-2 business days).

    Usually it takes about 10-20 days to arrive abroad (US, Canada), 7-10 days for Europe and about 3 weeks for Australia and New Zealand.

    During holidays shipping may take up to 4-8 weeks, and the estimated delivery date is estimated only, and is not guaranteed (especially in December and during winter holidays) because of growth number of packages, so post offices and customs work is significantly slowing down as a result.
