WHEELS OF FORTUNE: EARRINGS BY ILGIZ FAZULZYANOV

TURN THEM. SPIN THEM. MAKE A WISH.

She had just realized there were two things that prevent us from achieving our dreams: believing them to be impossible or seeing those dreams made possible by some sudden turn of the wheel of fortune, when you least expected it.

Always searching, always perfecting.

In one of his interviews, Ilgiz Fazulzyanov mentions how, in today's world, an artist needs to consistently offer something new to captivate audiences.

Gone are the days when one could spend several years on a single painting, sculpture or poem and hope to remain relevant. If artists adopt such a pace today, says Ilgiz, they risk fading into obscurity.

So, what he did was to study, deconstruct and reconstruct, mix and match the techniques from skilful and thorough Turkish experts, insights from inventive Chinese producers, the irresistible flair of Italians to blend them in a unique style, elevated to the heights of jewelry art.

When unique works of jewelers appear somewhere, unfortunately, not all of this can be called art. The jeweler initially puts the thought of selling in his head, and this goes against art. Jewelry art is the ability to professionally master traditional techniques, to put meaning, ideas into a product and, of course, in a modern presentation.

Ilgiz often emphasizes the importance of originality. Whenever he conceives a design, he ensures that it stands apart from all others, highlighting the significance for an artist’s recognition of having a distinct style. The distinctiveness of Ilgiz’s creations is due to the relentless dedication he has invested in studying, trying, making mistakes and learning from them, searching for his true self, which is pivotal, particularly for a master artist, as it influences the authenticity and uniqueness of their artistic expressions.

Ilgiz Fazulzyanov’s signature creations are made using the technique of painted enamel.” His favourite styles are Art Deco and Art Nouveau, but this does not stop him from experimenting and combining ancient techniques with modern developments.

The styles are determined by viewers and art critics. In fact, the artist himself does not think about style when creating a masterpiece.

A true artist gets inspired, gets that irresistible idea into his head, thinks about what message, what feeling, what emotion he wants to convey and creates.

These colorful and jolly earrings by Ilgiz Fazulzyanov, vibrant wheels of fortune follow you at every step, on sunny summer days or cool winter evenings. They are here to remind you that life is full of surprises.

May those surprises always be good ones.
