Russian artist-jeweler Vladimir Orzhekhovskiy was born in the Kostroma region 14 December 1951. His father loved to paint, and from childhood Vladimir remembers himself sculpting from plasticine soldiers in hussar uniform. The first bike and the first journey on it to the horizon – it was a nearest forest. Thus began his friendship with a backpack and long miles trips, where he found the secret of eternal beauty and nature. Vladimir Orzhekhovskiy creates amazing works of minerals – quartz, zircon, citrine, pearl, amethyst, rock crystal, aquamarine, turquoise, carnelian, jade, agate, amethyst. Whatever mineral he uses, he tries to keep its original appearance not to loose its connection with nature. His decorative compositions, sculptures and jewelry pieces can not be confused with anyone else, so unique they are.
