An old Russian city of Kostroma is famous for its jewelry masters, who brought the city the title of a jewellery capital of Russia. One of such masters, Ilya Palkin, alongside with his wife Vera work in their own art studio creating unique decorations based on the folk and Slavic motifs. In their creative duo, Vera is responsible for the design and Ilya, in particular, embodies her ideas into life. The gallery of their jewellery works include Russian fairy tale with flowering fern, a rupture-grass, Yaril-sun, owls and birds, smiling snakes, fish, cats and hares, etc. Meanwhile, each piece, whether it’s a bird or just a nameless character, is anthropomorphic in some ways and certainly animate.

Graduates of the Krasnoselsky College of artistic metalworking, Ilya and Vera use the elements of Russian folk embroidery and wood carvings into their work.

However, the style in which artists-jewelers work can not be defined by any one term. These elements of the ethnics are ancient Slavic images, reinterpreted in a witty manner. There is animalism (hangers with cats, hares and fish are especially good), and even elements of steampunk. As a rule, they produce their ornaments by collections, thought out in a single style – “Summer”, “Africa” ​​and so on. The main metal is silver, but goldsmiths also produce “gold collections”. Mostly, they are silver ornaments with hot enamel and inserts of precious and semiprecious stones.
