Photo in jewelry by Alexandra Goloviznina
Photographer and jeweler Alexandra Goloviznina was born and raised in St. Petersburg, but now she lives in Bakhchisaray, Crimea, Russia. Crimean nature is beautiful. Vibrant, diverse and rich. It is a huge source of inspiration and joy for Alexandra – flowering peach orchards, lavender and poppy fields, mountains and rocks, sea, rocks, sand, beautiful sky and clouds, and very bright sparkling stars …. “Crimean spring is so fresh, sunny and smells very tasty …. I am writing these lines and feel like a light, slightly cool spring breeze with the smell of cherry blossoms …. Autumn is warm, sunny and bright, too. Winter is so quiet, calm, and slow”. Alexandra photographs a lot, trying to capture the beauty that she sees around her.
“In the spring I spend a lot of time in the kitchen garden, planting flowers and some vegetables in the winter, I often want to knit, draw and autumn. A few years ago, among other needlework hobbies I started making jewelry .. I really liked it. I make them out of polymer clay, metal, and then Photo & Crafts combined to give ornaments. In the creation of jewelry I use my pictures. This jewelry with my vision of beauty around me – with flowers and leaves, trees and grass, sunrises and sunsets …
In creating this medallion and earrings Alexandra used a photo taken in the spring in the Crimea. These flowers are called muscari. They can not only delight in spring when blooming, and also throughout the year, inserted in a jewelry piece.
