For the definition of jewelry by the artists of the Mikhailov brothers Alexei and Andrey, the motifs of flora and fauna have a form-building meaning. Pure expressive forms, as if ringing from inner tension, made with the use of new technologies, achieve true artistic perfection.
In geometric – irregular shape, but surprisingly laconic and at the same time spectacular decorations, the metal seems to lose its dryness and “come to life” thanks to the dynamic texture and picturesque color scheme of the product surface.
The creative atmosphere in which the designers – jewelers brothers Mikhailovs create their works, allows them to develop projects and make products in a very wide range of styles. Thanks to this, each piece is distinguished by its artistic uniqueness and gives any costume features of originality, which is especially important in our modern life. These non-standard compositions are an excellent example of a skillful and harmonious interpretation of images and become a true piece of contemporary jewelry art with deep content.
The jewelers of the Mikhailov brothers have an emphasized nobleness of natural stones, the most sophisticated metalworking technique and a stunning beauty of a combination of a fascinating composition with harmonious accents. Their works are particularly light and extremely high-tech, since Mikhailovs Andrey and Alexey are not only professional designers. But also talented craftsmen, capable of creating compositions with a rich thematic repertoire and a clear organization of decor elements.
