My name is Daria Kuvshinova, and my jewellery is inspired by the intricate patterns found in nature. In this year's collection specifically, I drew inspiration from the beautiful and complex structures of Voronoi diagrams, flowers, and wasp nest cells. Using 3D modelling and programming, I create designs that simulate the randomness and imperfections found in nature, resulting in truly unique pieces of jewellery.

The collection also features organic casts of real wasps, akin to the lost wax casting technique. As the organic matter is consumed by the casting process, a one-of-a-kind mold of a naturally deceased wasp is left behind, thereby underscoring the interplay between life and life-like.

I believe that art and technology can work together to create beautiful, thought-provoking pieces that connect us to the world around us. My use of 3D printing and casting (I do both myself in-house) allows me to highlight the relationship between the natural and the man-made, while my incorporation of plique-a-jour enamelling invites light into my designs as a symbol of life and creative power.

With my jewellery, I hope to inspire others to explore the connections between art, science, and the natural world, and to appreciate the intricate beauty that surrounds us every day.

@dar.kuv You can turn everything into silver, with my help! I'm taking you on a buzzing journey into the world of organic casting, where we'll craft a unique piece of jewelry featuring a real bee. 🐝 Just take a look at this stunning piece! It all starts with an idea, just like the one you might have in mind. Whether it's a pendant, a ring, or something truly out of the ordinary, I'm here to bring your vision to life. 🐝 I carefully sourced an ethically harvested bee specimen, ensuring that no harm is done to these amazing creatures. 🐝 Preserving the bee is a delicate process. I encase it in a mold, making sure every detail is captured, preserving its intricate beauty forever. Then it’s where the magic happens. I melt the metal and pour it directly into the mold, embracing the bee's form, and turning it into a wearable work of art. 🐝 After cooling and careful finishing, I have your unique bee jewelry, brimming with the essence of nature and craftsmanship. 🐝 Notice the remarkable textures and details that only organic casting can create. Every piece is a tribute to the natural world, and it's as exceptional as the bee itself. 🐝 I personally hand-finish each piece, ensuring it meets my high standards of craftsmanship. I believe in quality over quantity, and that's what sets my work apart. ✨ But the best part? Seeing the joy on your face when you receive your custom bee jewelry. It's not just jewelry; it's a connection to nature and a symbol of the beauty that surrounds us. ✨ So, are you ready to own a piece of nature's wonder? Just drop me a DM, and we'll start crafting your unique bee jewelry together. Whether it's for a special occasion or just to celebrate life's beauty, let's make it memorable. ✨ Keep shining, keep smiling, and keep connecting with the world around you! #bee #beekeeper #beetok #beelover #naturelover #statementjewelry #contemporaryjewelry #artistoninstagram #custommade #jewelrytiktok ♬ original sound - Handcrafted jewellery πŸπŸ§¬πŸ‘ΎπŸͺΈ
