Every Wednesday during @mayisgoldmonth I’ll be featuring 6 different MAKERS in collaboration w @mayisgoldmonth
▪️Today, Svetlana of @svetlanalazardesign tells us how gold is important in her work:
🗯"Gold is important in my work because I strive to make lasting treasures for people. Gold is my chosen precious metal to create with. It has many qualities that lend itself to my work. It can be cast, formed, shaped and carved. It has a gorgeous reflective surface when polished and adds a luxuriance that no other metal does.
My work features lots of rich texture and subtle reflection and nods to history and fantasy. So it’s a perfect fit. Also, due to its properties, it is the perfect metal for a ring setting I’ve invented which mimics the movement of water beneath a gem. High karat gold is at the core of my designs (18 karat is my favorite to work with), and it is in combination with that gold, the hand working of it, and the carefully chosen gemstones that truly create a unique treasure for each wearer.”
