Lives and works in Kyiv, Ukraine, where she was born in 1981. Designer of Ukrainian ethnic jewelry. Her creations, she says, represent the most compelling and unique samples of ceramic bead necklaces inspired by ancient prototypes. However, she notes that her works are not exact reproductions of historic items but that the latter rather serve for her as a type of creative stimulus. She adds that, for the Slavic psyche, perception of beauty in its purest form evolved over centuries and that, for Ukrainian women, that beauty is often embodied in traditional necklaces, some of them adorned with coins and crosses.
