This is a story of how succulent addition of one creative person became enjoyable vocation. Being unable to find real succulents in her hometown flower shops she haven’t gave up. Instead, she started creating them on her own out of polymer clay. One idea lead to another and now super talented artist Iryna Osinchuk-Chajka creates wonderful succulent jewelry. It’s amazing where succulent mania can get you if you are dedicated enough! Her work expanded over time and now includes various creative items like ring boxes, pansies, butterflies, necklaces, hair pins, combs, and other interesting accessories. And yes! This story does have a happy ending. Iryna now owns a big collection of real succulents as well!
When it comes to inspiration, there are three sources for me. First of all, my work and the fact that I love it. Nobody makes me to come to my studio and work there. I enjoy being among things I crafted. Secondly, my nearest and dearest – my husband and two loving children are waiting for me at home. Finally, my hobby – I have a large succulent collection, which decorates my window sill. They inspire me every day.
I fell in love with succulents some time ago and sice then I have been making them. There was a funny story in my life when I couldnt find a real succulent in any shop of my native city, that’s why I started making my own succulents. Then it grew to a kind of ‘mania’, and now I just looking for the new places where I can plant my artificial succulents 🙂
I have a lot of ideas for the future. Thankfully, succulents are so complicated and interesting, they are an inexhaustible source of inspiration for me. That’s why I will soon present to my customers the new jewelry collection decorated with succulents of new shapes and colours!
