Items with golden decoration are created using author techniques, moisture and sunlight resistant.
All artworks are created using author techniques, although enamels are the same that were used by renowned Faberge company.
Items created using hot enamel technique are repeatedly annealed in the temperature of 1000°C, thereby they are sunlight and moisture resistant, practically, everlasting. Such items can be used both in interior and exterior, for example, near pools, saunas, on yachts and other types of moisture and sunlight aggressive environment. Materials - copper, hot enamel.
Ornaments - copper amulets, that also have healing effect, as they positively influence circulation of blood and blood pressure. Bright enamels attract surrounding looks, thereby preventing ''evil eye'' influence.
All artworks, paintings and miniatures, ornaments and clothes are characterized by two main qualities - author techniques and durability.
The Artist represents element of fire - metal and enamel is produced in fire, meaning that all the artwork carries positive energy of Sun, cleaning all the negative energy around it and bringing welfare to the owner. Especially the beneficial energetic effect is brought by bijouterie created by the Artist, as copper facilities blood circulationm normalization of blood pressure and releasing negative energy from the carrier.
In opposite to historical use of enamel where it was used in sacral art and small size articles for royal courts, the Artist allows freedom to the material showing its potential in full scale.
