It gives us great pleasure to introduce to you the jeweler Simon Elishakov and his superb collection of handcrafted jeweler. Elishakov, born in 1974, was drawn from an early age to sculpture and paintings. Elishakov’s forte derives from a masterly use of the technique of Champlevé. In the world of decorative art, Champlevé is a process consisting in cutting away troughs or cells in a metal plate and filling the depressions with pulverized vitreous enamel. This technique of Champlevé enameling came into prominence in the 12th century and was used more recently by the Russian jeweler Carl Fabergé and Louis-FranÃ§ois Cartier and now offered to you by Simon Elishakov. His customers are drawn to Simon Elishakov’s creations because of the refined technique he applies to each one of them as well as to their unique beauty.. Although the technique of Champlevé is usually limited to the use of gold, enamel and precious stones, Simon is one of the few craftsmen who master this technique while using gold, enamel and semi- precious or precious stones of a smaller caliber. This, in turn, enables his clients to acquire unique pieces at a reasonable cost and Simon Elishakov’s creations regularly go under the hammer at Sotheby's. All of Elishakov’s creations are stamped
and bear his SIMELI initials.
