Studio DARKUV's jewelry collection not only draws inspiration from nature but also incorporates it in unique ways. Daria incorporates real organic objects into her designs through a special casting process, highlighting the connection between living things and the beauty of nature, creating truly one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry.
In 2023 the "Black and Yellow" collection was released, featuring a limited edition of wasp earrings and pendsnts. The molds from this collection were taken from (naturally deceased) wasps. The name of the collection emphasises on the colours of the wasps which are no longer visible in the design, pointing out to something that exists only in our imagination.

@dar.kuv You can turn everything into silver, with my help! I'm taking you on a buzzing journey into the world of organic casting, where we'll craft a unique piece of jewelry featuring a real bee. 🐝 Just take a look at this stunning piece! It all starts with an idea, just like the one you might have in mind. Whether it's a pendant, a ring, or something truly out of the ordinary, I'm here to bring your vision to life. 🐝 I carefully sourced an ethically harvested bee specimen, ensuring that no harm is done to these amazing creatures. 🐝 Preserving the bee is a delicate process. I encase it in a mold, making sure every detail is captured, preserving its intricate beauty forever. Then it’s where the magic happens. I melt the metal and pour it directly into the mold, embracing the bee's form, and turning it into a wearable work of art. 🐝 After cooling and careful finishing, I have your unique bee jewelry, brimming with the essence of nature and craftsmanship. 🐝 Notice the remarkable textures and details that only organic casting can create. Every piece is a tribute to the natural world, and it's as exceptional as the bee itself. 🐝 I personally hand-finish each piece, ensuring it meets my high standards of craftsmanship. I believe in quality over quantity, and that's what sets my work apart. ✨ But the best part? Seeing the joy on your face when you receive your custom bee jewelry. It's not just jewelry; it's a connection to nature and a symbol of the beauty that surrounds us. ✨ So, are you ready to own a piece of nature's wonder? Just drop me a DM, and we'll start crafting your unique bee jewelry together. Whether it's for a special occasion or just to celebrate life's beauty, let's make it memorable. ✨ Keep shining, keep smiling, and keep connecting with the world around you! #bee #beekeeper #beetok #beelover #naturelover #statementjewelry #contemporaryjewelry #artistoninstagram #custommade #jewelrytiktok ♬ original sound - Handcrafted jewellery 🐝🧬👾
