Jewellery atelier of Stanislav Drokin – is a creative laboratory where constantly occurs an experiment with a search for new forms and colour combinations of gemstones. The purpose of this process is the creation of jewellery with emotions, character. Every piece is created in a single copy, rarely in a limited edition and is intended for connoisseurs of contemporary jewellery art.
Each jewel goes a long way from idea to realization. The production of one piece can take up to 300 working hours. Moreover, a search for right colour and sizes of stones sometimes takes months. In the process of creation modern technologies and handwork are used. This combination gives a possibility to achieve the highest quality performance.
One of the most important components of the atelier is professional competence. When Stanislav Drokin was 15 years old he started to master refinements and secrets of the craft of metal working — engraving and jewellery. Founding in Kharkiv in 1994 jewellery atelier, Stanislav has already had many years of professional experience and creative potential. This made it possible to master and launch in the atelier all cycles of production, including casting.
During 1998-1999 Stanislav Drokin got trained in gemmological centres of Ukraine, Germany and Poland. In 1998 he became a member of the Designers Union of Ukraine and the International Association “Society of Designers”. In 2011 he graduated from the Kharkiv State Academy of Design and Fine Arts.
Professional knowledge and experience accumulated by Stanislav Drokin are passed on today to apprentices – masters of atelier. At the same time new innovative technologies are put into operation. This makes it possible to save received and discover new knowledge and skills for future generations. Today in the world dominated by mass reproduction, there are not many high-level author atelier left.
