Bone cat brooch
When I first saw jewelry by Ukrainian designer Lera Procopets who works under pseudonym Valeria Myrusso I experienced mixed feelings; her creations are surreal, sometimes a bit disturbing or even creepy (in her collection you can find, for example, a crow skull pendant or bone phalanges hairpins) but nevertheless strangely beautiful and mysteriously appealing. Lera often gets inspired by fairy tales, myths and legends and so, images of many odd creatures appear on her jewelry. She works with polymer clay, coral, semiprecious stones, shells, metal though some of the details she simply finds at flea markets. Each piece of her handcrafted jewelry is unique, there are no replicas or duplicates in her collections.
Pendants: Bathory (the most prolific female serial killer in history) and Lotus
Valeria is a founder of The Black Hen Gremoire studio. No wonder that such a name was chosen for the artist's studio. "A grimoire is a textbook of magic. Such books typically include instructions on how to create magical objects like talismans and amulets, how to perform magical spells, charms and divination and also how to summon or invoke supernatural entities such as angels, spirits, and demons".
