Portrait of an Artisan~ALIRA Treasures/My Wonderful Gems

Irena Zaretchnev, owner of ALIRA Treasures, incorporates gemstones, pearls and crystals, into sophisticated elegant pieces of wearable art ranging from classic, modern and contemporary casual to timeless, heirloom-quality pieces, that can be handed down from generation to generation.

While using a number of jewellery making techniques, such as stringing, wire wrapping and wire crochet, Irena often creates original designs by combining them all in one piece achieving original texture and a unique look.

Irene also uses a variety of metal finishes including copper, sterling silver and gold-filled, which gives her customers great budget flexibility.
