I TRY TO USE ONLY ETHICAL MATERIALS
The ethical and environmental implications of my activities, the possibility of further recycling of jewelry and the safety of work processes are important to me. That's why most often I work in the technique of wax modeling. 80% of my creations are made from recycled silver and gold (you can read more about the jewelry recycling program on Instagram).
A clean, light silver color is close to me aesthetically. That's why I rarely oxidize my jewelry and don't use rhodium. But I use electroplating - silvering and gilding to give the desired color of some jewelry.
Another important feature of my materials are recycled inserts. I rarely create jewelry with minerals because I see a lot of potential and interest in working with surfaces and shapes. But those few jewelry with minerals necessarily contain recycled ones
In exclusive series, I work with materials that are not intended for jewelry - for example, the 'I am not an accident' series is made from the silver-plated core of an old electrical wire, and the Voltage series is made from a copper bus from an old transformer box
