Viktoria Soloveva is a jewelry creator from Saint Petersburg, Russia. She makes beautiful steampunk style accessories that have a victorian feel to them. "My inspiration is my own love for creativity and beauty," Viktoria told Bored Panda.
How did it all start? "I was inspired by searching new possibilities for a hobby that could be a small business that would support me. I saw some of the jewelry that was created already and thought - I could make better!" And so she did. Her intricate 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 jewelry pieces.
