Yanaya Spring is a wonderful jewelry designer from Odessa, Ukraine who finds inspiration from the perfection in the beauty of nature, flowers and rural themes.
Her new line of fine jewelry preserves the natural beauty of plants by turning them into the jewelry.
Fresh flowers and leaves lend themselves well to the creation of earrings, brooches or bracelets. To create them, she chemically cleans off the floral layers until the thin vegetable veins, or skeleton, are exposed. She then returns them to their fleshy forms by using a special plastic. That's why all the jewelry beautifully shines and has a solid foundation.
In her plant collections I found grape, maple, aspen, Egyptian rose, orchids, gerberas, cherries, poplar and ivy. She also uses well-known graffiti writer images and indy artist portraits of women.
Young designer Yanaya Spring links us to the urban girl dreams that arise from missing the green of nature.
