Sasha Shkolnik
Juvelisto Design
Richmond, BC. Canada

I am inspired by every day life. The creation of a piece of
jewellery starts from an image, a memory. Sometimes it=B4s something
I=B4ve seen during my travels. Other times, an impression appears
unexpectedly out of nowhere. Or an idea comes to me in my dreams, in
the form of shapes or lines. I like to develop a vision of a piece,
but as an artist, I am aware that the final result is a subject to
sudden inspiration and should be fluid in nature. I have a need to
express myself in a different design every time. It excites me to
try new techniques and styles. One=B4s lifetime is not enough to fully
explore all the possibilities of working with metal. My truly happy
state is when I=B4m creating, regardless if it=B4s in my workshop or i=
n
my imagination. When I work on a design, I feel a mysterious power
leading me to discovery, helping me to unveil a creation. I am
blessed to be surrounded by people who have influenced me on my path
and shaped my artistic personality.

The longer I look at the jade and pearl pendant here the more
mystified I am about the method she used to assemble it. Couldn’t be
soldered with the pearls in it. The side “rails” couldn’t be peened
over on their ends without damaging the pearls, could they? Seems to
me the pressure required to burnish the ends down would also damage
the pearls. Anyone have an idea how she did it?
