Yardley, PA. USA
Lara Ginzburg was born and grew up in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, one of the cultural centers of the former Soviet Union. She currently leaves in beautiful Bucks County, PA.
Her first encounters with art go back to her early childhood art education in day care. She is thankful to her wonderful day care teacher, who gave her, her first lessons in needlework, watercolor, oil painting and clay sculpting. This teacher also organized her first solo art exhibitions, developing in her an early love of the art.
Her current work combines sterling and pure silver, precious and semi- precious stones and now her newest passion - enameling. Techniques involved in making the pieces include, but are not limited to one or more of the following: forging, sintering, forming, soldering, and enameling.
She has developed a unique style, creating jewelry of highly personalized designs. No two pieces are alike. Each is individual and beautiful, and each reflects superb quality. Dramatic use of color, shape and texture assures that her designs are quite distinctive and truly original.
