The best way to preserve jewelry

Keep the pieces apart so that they do not scratch each other.
Jewelry should be kept out of bathrooms and kitchens.

Nature is a very important source of inspiration in my work. Nature is always beautiful and inspiring.
This modern watercolor painting I did when I spend a beautiful evening at Provincetown beach, waiting for sunset. It was so beautiful and peaceful. In this painting I wanted to express a mood at that moment with shapes and stylized forms of see world. I wanted to show the process of life, and how nature is very connected with humans.
After spending all my morning waking at the beach, I had a vision of an ocean inspired necklace. I was seduced by warm palette of seashells and cool colors of water. I gathered some shells, beach glass, and went back to my studio.
In this necklace I decided to use natural ocean jasper cabochon (when worn, ocean jasper emits a gentle nurturing energy), natural white coral cabochons (helps promote balance and modesty). I used opal sea green, opal moss green, opal ivory, opal tan silver lined seed beads, coral, mother-of-pearl natural beads, and Czech glass.
Color is an extremely important to me, because it influences mood. This necklace beautiful palette of colors - whites, greens, and shades of sand - brings the soothing calm of the seashore into your hart and body.
Mother-of- pearl beads epitomizes feminine loveliness, Czech glass beads add sparkle, and fringe brings interest and hint of the exotic to the necklace.

Watercolor portrait of grandfather
This painting represents my grandfather’s life, and shows the landscapes of his land complete with his parents still standing sauna house, and river where he likes to fishing.
All my childhood summers were spent at my grandparent’s village. When the vision for this painting came to me, I knew this wonderful place was the ideal setting for the image.
There is the symbolic meaning of the oak tree which is in the background to the left of my grandfather’s side. It represents strength and longevity.
My goal was to create a painting that was meaningful and unique.
I used a limited palette of colors: Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Red, Alizarin Crimson, Burn Siena, Raw Umber, Ultramarine Blue, Cobalt Blue, Viridian Green, Ivory Black.
Designer jewelry with sunny Amber.
I am inspired by the natural radiance of amber, and its warm and golden tones. Amber is fossilized tree resin, over 50 million years old. While amber can be found throughout the world, the finest comes from the southern shore of the Baltic Sea.
Baltic amber is referring as the “Gold of the North”. In 16th-18th century, necklaces, bracelet, watch cases, buttons, boxes, and even luxury interior fittings were made using amber. Amber was acclaimed to posses the power of healing.
True Baltic amber usually is milky and pale under the crust and occurs naturally in a variety of colors: yellow, white, red, brown, and black. Green and blue are most rare.
I got this beautiful, like a sunshine amber stone, and decided to design a gorgeous bracelet. Like you see, amber is nicely complemented by gold and warm earth tones.

Original Watercolor Art
Watercolor is a delightful medium to use and it offers a great deal of potential for all kinds of subject matter. For me, appeal of watercolor lies in the way that it can be applied in subtle washes (a ‘wash’ is a thin layer of translucent watercolor paint) to capture the transient effects of light and mood.
I like to use watercolor in a more controlled, detailed way.
For this playful painting I had chosen greens, blues, that represents harmony, red - joy, luck, happiness, orange and burnt sienna to bring warmth to the painting.
I use hand made, archival and PH neutral watercolor paper by Arches or Winsor & Newton.

Transparency is the most unique quality of watercolor, as it allows the white of the paper to shine through. In addition to transparency, in this painting, I focused on glazing. Glazing is the technique of painting a wet wash (or layer) of color over a previously dried layer of color, to give the optical illusion of a third color.
To add interest to the painting I brought patterns and abstract shapes using one shape over and over, and interlocking it with another.
I have chosen three sleeping birds: swans and Canada geese in order to express one and the same feeling, because I know that repetition of one and the same thing deepens the effect produced. I painted two other geese in action, to give a painting a filing of sound.
For the sky in my painting, I was inspired by magical image of night sky, studded with gold stars, decorating the ceiling of the ancient Egypt tomb.
Big moon symbolizes home. Colors in my painting shift from dark to light. Neutrals - cream, white, beige, brown and grey blue – brings a relaxed, calming feeling.
Colors work together in different ways.
There are basically two types of relationship between colors – harmony and contrast. Colors that are next to each other for example red and yellow, are harmonious, while those that are opposite, for example red and green, contrast with each other. Harmonious colors are more calming, and contrasting colors are more dramatic.
In this handmade necklace I used different shades of green (forest green, light green, mint green) and added little bit drama with contrasting color root beer. For background I had chosen neutral color cream, added shine and texture with copper beads.
In this modern, abstract painting I had chosen harmonious, calming colors: blue, blue green, green and added warmth and balance to painting with contrasting color yellow ochre.
Bring curiosity, interest and conversation to the room.
This painting brings curiosity, interest and conversation to the room. It would call people to come up and study it. I think it’s perfect for living room, guest room or children room.
This painting is subtle but still pretty crazy. I worked with four color palette: blue, green, orange and brown. I painted sheep in different patterns to create playfulness and give interest to main characters - sheep. I painted trees in different shades of green to give painting little bit serenity. There’s something about the continuity that calms you. Orange cherry tree gives excitement and flower power.
You can’t go wrong with this painting; colors are very earthy, and it looks good with light and dark wood furniture, traditional, contemporary or modern décor.
This painting is perfect for a subtle, casual vacation house and would look gorgeous in living room, dining room or bed room. Bring in your house the colors of sky, sea, and grass.
Mona Lisa White Flowers. Original Painting - Oil on canvas (gallery - stretched)
I love to paint flowers, so I decided to paint white Peonies. They are beautiful for their fair, quiet, almost whispering tones. All over the world, white represents purity and simplicity.
To prevent flowers from feeling too stark and boring I added texture with thick paint brushwork.
For background I had chosen contrasting colors turquoise blue and orange to add little bit drama.
When I balancing contrasting colors, I always think about quantity, value, and intensity of each color I use. In painting all colors are medium-light-value, and low-intensity.
How to create a certain mood or feeling in painting?
Before beginning any painting I try to ask myself: How can I create a painting that will convey a certain mood or feeling? What do I want to say?
My goal as an artist is to communicate visually in such a way that it will stimulate the viewer’s imagination to see not only with their eyes, but also with their hearts.
I solve the major issues first - values, colors, shapes - and then relating them to one another.
Symbolic meaning of shapes or subjects is very important to me. In this painting the paper boats reminds me childhood. When I think about it, I feel warmth, peace in my heart. Life is too complicated, with this painting I trying to find my way back to my peaceful, worry free childhood.
With the abstract shapes and decorative patterns I express joy and playfulness. White flowers symbolizing innocents, purity.
Window with the beautiful seascape - like mirror of the future, haw I would like to feel. Quiet water gives sense of serenity and peace. Geometric Shapes of houses symbolize order and stability.
I work from my imagination. I always wish to transmit what is pleasant and good for me and I try to recreate this in each painting.
I influenced by everything that moves me.
Which beading threads to choose?
I love to bead with Fire Line thread. It’s prewaxed, strong, flexible and ideal for use with silk seed beads and crystals, which can have sharp edges that cut other threads. They resist fraying and have near-zero stretch.
I may choose a Fire Line for strength; for another piece a Nymo threads - perfect for color match (it comes in 18 colors).
That’s why I decided to make a peace of jewelry “Nature Inspired” simple, with four- color palette( black, cream, brown and grey) and bold abstract patterns.
This necklace looks amazing at winter time with the blacks and grays; summer and spring with the cream, white and grey blue colors; fall with earth tones.
One summer day, after visiting inspiring farm, I fell in love with the sheep, they so cute! Immediately I started painting in my mind.
Couple months later, like a recurring dream, the idea of a sheep painting once again occupied my thoughts. I would like to show, how playful and together elegant sheep are.
Firs I work out several ideas in a number of sketches like this one. I play with composition and color. Then I enlarge it on a piece of tracing paper. After working out all the elements on the tracing paper, drawing and redrawing parts until I am satisfied they will work, I trace the drawing on to a larger piece of watercolor paper.
In this painting I used blue, blue greens, orange, red orange, ochre, burnt sienna, burnt umber.
I imagine this painting in elegant room, with light blue green, tan, sand or light peachy walls, red orange sofa with playful blue, green pillows. Chinese coffee table and elegant light wood chairs.
