It’s hard to believe, but accomplished jewelry artist Olesya Bryutova is only 31 years old! A third-generation artist, she grew up surrounded by paintings and sculpture. Although the young Siberian was forced to take a day job, not even that could stem her creativity. Initially inspired by well-known beader Guzel Bakeeva, Bryutova decided to start making her own jewelry designs, and her results are nothing short of amazing.
Not surprisingly, her complex bead weaving efforts have won her some acclaim. With her fondness for dragons and drama, I’m sure Bryutova will be winning competitions for years to come. And with any luck, she’ll be able to quit the day job and focus all her attention on creating magnificent pieces like the ones here.
