Russian jewelry brand Sirin

Russian brand Sirin Jewelry Company. When in 1990 the artists and craftsmen of the famous Moscow Experimental Jewelry Factory decided to create a new enterprise, Sirin became its symbol. Sirin is a bird of paradise-girl, whose image has long been popular in Russian art. For the famous masters of the past K. Faberge, I. Khlebnikov, F. Rückert and others, this fabulous, poetic character has become one of the main symbols of the national-romantic trend in art.

The employees of the Sirin firm saw their main task as continuing the wonderful traditions of the domestic jewelry business and inscribing their own page in its history. And they succeeded. The best works of “Sirin” can serve as a standard of impeccable quality and inspired design. During the period of its creative activity, the company acquired its original and inimitable artistic style. Sirin’s art, which developed on the solid foundation of the Soviet jewelry school and based on an appeal to the national heritage, can rightfully be called the Russian style of the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries.

The stylistic trend in art is not created by one master or creative association. The style arises and develops as a result of the work of a whole generation of artists and jewelers, “enriched with the Russian creative spirit and culture.” Sirin has always been at the forefront of artistic pursuits, at the center of the modern Russian jewelry process.
It is “Sirin” who deserves credit for the revival of various types and genres of jewelry and stone-cutting art. They were the first in Russia to turn to the undeservedly forgotten genre of jewelry fantasies – unique and exquisite objects made of precious materials that have no practical use, intended for collecting (Objets d’Art).

· Items of worship (icons, crosses, images, Easter eggs, church utensils). Sirin’s Easter products have become expensive and refined gifts for representatives of the political and financial elite around the world. In these works, she conquers the unusual, original design of the designer, the skillful selection of precious materials and the invariably high level of workmanship.

Jewelry (tiaras, earrings, rings, brooches, pendants, necklaces). Along with luxury and elegance, Sirin’s jewelry contains an amazing slowness and lack of surface effects. The lines of the drawings are soft and smooth, the rhythms are calm and solemn. They are imbued with the poetics of old jewelry, a reverent attitude to the world of living nature, to plastic miniature forms and exquisite details, as if embodying the very essence of jewelry craftsmanship, the finest painstaking work, fragility, tenderness and dignity of images.

Silver (figurines, dishes, table decorations). Silverware by Sirin is a series of miniature sculptures based on classic examples of folk and social types of pre-revolutionary Russia, animal painting, as well as compositions on the themes of modern folklore about hunting, bathing and fishing. The choice of minerals is of great importance: spectacular quartz, agate, jasper, jade, which convey the pristine nature of living nature. Animalistic plots are carefully worked out, with almost portrait features of dog breeds, horses, birds, with the transfer of the most typical qualities in their character and appearance.

The range of artistic means and techniques, which are perfectly mastered by the firm’s masters, is extremely wide – from transparent guilloche enamels and artistic casting to traditional Russian filigree and grain. The management of the company, headed by Sergei Krainov, managed to attract the best masters of the post-Soviet space to cooperation – the jewelers of the famous experimental workshop of MEYUZ, who once created exclusive products for the Soviet, party and artistic elite: S. Levshakov, N. Odrov, V. Kabanov, S. Bugrov, A. Ryabova, A. Isaeva, enamel M. Ampar. Subsequently, they were joined by a group of talented craftsmen – Yu. Moisievich, A. Danyan, M. Nitochkin, O. Bayadzhan. Carved works from mammoth bones are created by N. Kulikova, and the only enamel painter is E. Baranov. The traditions of jewelry dynasties are being revived.

The works of the Sirin company are always recognizable due to their high professionalism and beautiful, expressive drawing. The main merit in this is the designers Tatiana Zharkova and Natalia Nagurnaya, who determine the artistic policy of the company. Delicate and feminine accessories designed according to their design adorn everyday life, creating a special atmosphere of pastoral beauty. The artists and craftsmen of the Sirin company managed to feel the needs of a modern person, tired of a unified life, and create a dreamland inhabited by elves, putti, fluttering butterflies, and precious flowers that look just like living things.
