I’m Nastia Ivlieva, founder and editor of The Lostinjewels. I came to this blog as a jewelry entusiast who would like to share her passion for this amazing creative world especially for contemporary art jewelry and design.
Born and raised in Moscow, I graduated the philology department of the Russian State University for Humanities in 2008 and worked as a interpreter and translator in the design and cinematography.
After completing my Master Degree in Language and Literature, I entered the Milan University to continue my study. As an interpreter I collaborated with the theater companies, italian craftsmen and artisan family factories.
More I stayed in Italy and saw design and craftswork around, more I faschinated with this world. I started to study Fashion Jewelry Design and Metalsmithing in the Milan Ambrosian School of Jewelry Making, attended courses in Moscow and took masterclasses in wax modelling. I discovered the beauty of artisan work and power of craftmanship that could evoke and inspire reflection, capture new memories.
Lauched in 2017, this blog/magazine is for all jewelry lovers. I write about history and designers, exhibitions and books, modern jewelers and celebrities who left an imprint and influenced the trends. I will be happy to hear your comments, feedback and wishes.
Enjoy the reading!
