This artist, with her talent, was able to breathe life into the inanimate. Her decorations are like images that arise in our memories – we remember their essence, their beauty, but at the same time they are elusive, like a thought that cannot be taken into our hands. Cindy managed to shape the ephemeral beauty of the moment, which reflected a piece of nature.

To lighten the weight, precious metals are practically not used in the products, preference is given to titanium, while the metal structure remains invisible, the stones form the surface of the product as closely as possible.
Skillfully selected shades and various cuts of precious stones give softness and a unique pattern to the wings of butterflies – they seem to be strewn with stardust, in their form grace and awe, they convey all the fragility of this creature.
Flowers in jewelry look as natural as possible, there is no symmetry in them, the stems do not have straight lines, they themselves create the shape of the jewelry.
