HOUSTON, Texas – June 24, 2014 – The Russian Cultural Center “Our Texas” , debuts a classic collection of handmade jewelry with an elegantly modern twist by local Houston artist, Vika Filippov , at 7:30p.m. on July 18. This event is a must-attend for the most discriminating fashion connoisseurs and anyone with a passion for the desirable one-of-a-kind jewelry accessories. “Rare, unique and positively striking” are among the words that describe what will be on display and for sale by VikaLive at the Russian Cultural Center’s CaviaArt Gallery.
Traceable to her Russian heritage, Vika’s signature style is marked by lively color arrangements and unusual settings by combining recycled metals with natural semi-precious gemstones and Swarovski crystals. Despite every Vika Live piece being a one-of-a-kind, one of her pieces sells regularly and has become a staple in her repertoire.
“As an artist, I am intrigued by combination colors, textures, and forms found in nature,” Vika says on her website.Inspired by the allure of European fashion and earthy flair of colorful semi-precious stones, pieces by Vika Live make a fashionable statement for any occasion. The Vika Live Jewelry exhibition will run until September 30, 2014. Admission is free and wine will be served at the premiere.
