Hello and welcome! My name is Marina, graphic&web designer, and I stand in front of handmade fairytale.
*How it all started*
Handcrafting, and generally doing something creative with my fingers has always been the greatest passion for me. So, it is not a surprise that I fell in love with clay (mostly polymer clay) once I got it in my fingers. It was 8years ago, and I had the idea to make a birthday present for my friend, which to me is the best gift one could get – something personal, authentic and unique. Birthday present went so well, lucky girl fell in love with it, showed it proudly to everyone else, and one thing led to another, I started creating and eventually selling these unique pieces, and continued to put smiles on people’s faces :)
That is actually my main inspiration and drive that keeps me going, to create as much handmades as I can.
*Funny looking creatures*
Marina现在做一些非常精细的东西，所以她在寻找新的技术和方法。这就是Marina开始研究她的收藏品MARINUSH CREATURES系列的原因，MARINUSH CREATURES与人们的生活比较密切，MARINUSH CREATURES也代表了Marina想要表达出来的创作想法。Marina非常享受这个创作的过程，因为这个过程中有很多的有趣的、想象中的生物。Marina喜欢看着小小的粘土在她手中变成一个个可爱的面孔，就像是Marina赋予了生命给它们，让它们开始一个属自己的生活。最后，Marina最希望的还是她每个创作出来的作品都能找到一个喜欢它的人。每个人都会发现自己的性格会和一种动物很类似，可能是熊、浣熊、狐狸、树懒、鲸鱼、或者蝙蝠等等。
Always searching for new ways and techniques, I now do highly detailed stuff with lots and lots of textures, keeping an eye on tiniest details. That’s how I started working on my collection MARINUSH CREATURES, which probably represents the work that describes me the most, and it is something that sticks with people. Funny looking animals, and imaginary creatures do make me enjoy the most in the process. I love seeing those faces rise up from one small piece of clay. It is like I am giving them a life of their own! And actually the loveliest thing goes afterwards : when each and every creature gets to find its caring owner ♥
Every person finds himself in some wild animal spirit: is it a bear, raccoon, fox or even a whale, or a sloth, or even a bat! :)
As much as I enjoy making silly characters, I do enjoy creating any kind of jewelry piece that is somehow connected to the nature. It is, after all, my greatest inspiration. Leaves or feathers, for example – each is a unique piece, and it cannot be repeated. With vivid colors, and highly detailed, carefully crafted texture, every piece tells a unique story, an ode to Flora and Fauna kingdom.
My newest models of necklaces are inspired by birds – representing a free, wild-spirit, dreamy and magical landscapes, fairytales which exist everywhere around us – you just need to keep your mind open :)
