Nana Aristova's passion for jewelry dates back to her childhood and the discoveries she made while traveling the world. As a child she felt strongly attracted to the jewelry traditions of the Scythians (ancient population of Siberia, the country where she was born). Later, as she explored various jewelry-making traditions around the world, she discovered that the handmade art of Bali particularly seduced her.
It wasn't long before she met Ketut, a Balinese lady who became her partner and dear friend and together they have formed a team of skilled artisans in Ubud (Bali) who make unique jewelry fusing contemporary designs with ancient traditions.
She has also created a "laboratory" in Italy where she personally makes jewelry.
