What is Golem?
I was inspired to do this jewelry collection when I saw the Golem Design Studio clay beads and pendants at a bead show. The colors caught my eye and I decided this would be my first jewelry collection. I love working with teal colors so that is the color theme I chose for creating this line of jewelry. This is a limited edition, there are only one and two of each of the pendant necklaces and bracelets.
I had the pleasure of meeting and visiting with Vlad at the Bead and Button Show. Vladislav Ivanova and his wife Kremena own and operate Golem Design Studio along with their daughter. They live in Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria where they also have their design studio. They handmake all of their clay pendants and beads. After they create each of the pieces, they carve and or stamp the designs on each of them. The stamps they use are also made by them. After each of the pieces are dried and baked, they then hand paint each of the pieces using a variety of brushes and colors.
