Artist Spotlight: Olga Babushkina
Olga Babushkina is a Detroit based artist with a uniquely varied background. A professional chemist, trained folk dancer and gymnast, in recent years she grew her scope of interest to the history of clothing and accessories. Specifically tribal and statement jewelry.
Olga carefully picks each individual necklace component from an assortment of materials offered by thoroughly selected vendors. The markings, striations, and irregularity of gemstones enhance the uniqueness of each artistic creation.
All pieces are designed and handmade in Olga's studio from the highest quality natural materials. The colorful beauty of each bead or stone is highlighted with antique silver from India, Thailand, Afghanistan, and Nepal.
Per the mission statement of this shop all artists have agreed to contribute 10% of proceeds to a charity of their choice.
Charity: Michigan Humane Society
