Moscow based jewelry designer Elena Safronova grew up in a jeweler’s family, and enjoyed creativity since childhood. Most of all she liked drawing and designing costumes and jewelry for her dolls. The girl’s father instilled in her a love for jewelry and taught her the techniques of working with metal. Also, he taught the girl to understand stones, metals, and to see beautiful lines and shapes. Elena’s parents introduced her to various types of arts and crafts visiting exhibitions and museums. Thus, the question of choosing a future profession for Elena was obvious.
Enrolling in the Academic School of Design, Elena studied interior design and decor. It was a wonderful opportunity to get acquainted with the classical principles of composition and color.
A multimedia artist, Elena has been working in wirewrap technique for the last 10 years. “This technique makes it possible to embody almost any idea in metal. In particular, to create volumetric forms and complex compositions. Besides, weaving goes well with both classic jewelry techniques and modern technologies”.

Creating brooches, pendants, rings and necklaces, Elena works with silver, copper, brass, and nickel silver. Meanwhile, a special love and inspiration of the designer is her collection of stones.
