Jewellery atelier of Stanislav Drokin – is a creative laboratory where constantly occurs an experiment with a search for new forms and color combinations of gemstones. The purpose of this process is the creation of jewelry with emotions, character. Every piece is created in a single copy, rarely in a limited edition and is intended for connoisseurs of contemporary jewelry art.

Each jewel goes a long way from idea to realization. The production of one piece can take up to 300 working hours. Moreover, a search for right color and sizes of stones sometimes takes months. In the process of creation, modern technologies and handwork are used. This combination gives a possibility to achieve the highest quality performance.

One of the most important components of the atelier is professional competence. When Stanislav Drokin was 15 years old he started to master refinements and secrets of the craft of metalworking – engraving, and jewelry. Founding in Kharkiv in 1994 jewelry atelier, Stanislav has already had many years of professional experience and creative potential. This made it possible to master and launch in the atelier all cycles of production, including casting.

During 1998-1999 Stanislav Drokin got trained in gemological centers of Ukraine, Germany, and Poland. In 1998 he became a member of the Designers Union of Ukraine and the International Association “Society of Designers”. In 2011 he graduated from the Kharkiv State Academy of Design and Fine Arts.

Professional knowledge and experience accumulated by Stanislav Drokin are passed on today to apprentices – masters of an atelier. At the same time, new innovative technologies are put into operation. This makes it possible to save received and discover new knowledge and skills for future generations. Today in the world dominated by mass reproduction, there are not many high-level author atelier left.

Love of Stanislav Drokin for his work and stones led to the implementation of two projects – the exhibition “The Magical World of Stone”, first held in 1995 and Ukrainian festival of design “JewelerArtProm” was held at the Kharkiv Art Museum in 2004. Stanislav Drokin was one of the initiators of the first in Kharkiv trade jewelry exhibitions.

Coloured gemstones and opals as of today occupy a special place in jewelry from Stanislav Drokin. Giving preference to European facet of the best houses with centuries-old tradition, taking care of the process of creating jewelry, bringing his own creativity, this way the main components of the value of jewelry are formed.

The debut of Stanislav Drokin in European exhibitions and international competitions took place in 2014. Jewellery by Stanislav Drokin was appreciated by authoritative experts – members of the jury of prestigious international competitions, as confirmed by victories in them. This was the beginning of a new stage in the development of the atelier.
