Viktoria Soloveva is a handmade jewelry creator from Saint Petersburg, Russia. She makes beautiful steampunk style accessories that have Victorian jewelry feel to them. "My inspiration is my own love for creative ideas and beauty," Viktoria told Bored Panda.
How did it all start? "I was inspired by searching for new possibilities for a hobby that could be a small business that would support me. I saw some of the cool jewelry that was created already and thought - I could make better!" And so she did. Her unique jewelry pieces found their audience.
Viktoria says that sometimes it gets difficult. "The most difficult part is to keep going when it's off-season time. But it pays off in the end. I like when my work is appreciated it inspires me to make more intricate and more unique things."
The artist is a huge steampunk fan and loves "Mad Max" movies, "Fallout" and "Bioshock" games, and this clearly shows in her beautiful Victorian style-inspired jewelry pieces.
