MY work was greatly influenced by Leon Bakst, a costume designer of the Russian Ballet in St Petersburg, who made unique designs for the legendary company of the 1910s. Rich body jewellery hung on sternum, back, arms and legs, moving harmoniously with the body, following the dancer's movements. He had the courage to design extremely rich and complex costumes and jewellery for dynamic dances. Not only did pieces not hinder the dancer, they allowed them to fly straighter in the air, intensifying each and every movement. That's the reason why I also use refined closures for casual necklaces, special giant tassels hanging on the chest or back, that can be worn various ways. From time to time I find new, interesting polished stones, so the pieces in the series are constantly expanding. Wearing a tassel necklace can make any woman feel like a queen, and act like one too.
