"THINKING OUTSIDE THE JEWELLERY BOX"

NICOLAI STUDIED WESTERN EUROPEAN ART IN ASHKHABAD AND MOSCOW. HOWEVER, HIS EYE FOR PATTERN AND COLOR WAS INSPIRED BY DAILY LIFE IN HIS NATIVE TURKMENIA, A LAND OF CARPETS, MOSQUES, AND WOVEN TEXTILES.

HE FINDS HIS MOTIFS BY CUTTING THROUGH SPECIMENS TO REVEAL IMAGES LIKE WINGS OF A BUTTERFLY OR A LOTUS FLOWER TO USE AS A CENTERPIECE. NICOLAI HAS DONE THIS KIND OF WORK FOR OVER 40 YEARS AND HAS BEEN WELL RECEIVED FOR HIS LAPIDARY ARTISTRY.
