Igor Uchevatov

Jewelry artist

 

Born in the Soviet period in cold and severe Siberia, the author has always been fascinated by stories and programs of faraway tropical countries with colorful and exotic animals. This is why his hobbies: natural science, biology and entomology, have been inspiring him in his designs.

Being a multifaceted artist working with various techniques, the author set his heart on titanium, a hard-to-treat material, and the unique anodizing technology applicable to it (producing various colors on the surface using electric current). The unique technique development took many years; when the first pieces were finished, they were highly appreciated by the entire jewelers’ community.
