Stanislav Drokin began creating jewellery whilst working for a radio electronics factory, where he learnt engraving and metal work. With no formal training, he was passionate about cultivating and furthering his jewellery knowledge and went on to study in Ukraine, Germany and Poland, as well as completing a Masters at Kharkiv Academy of Art and Design.


The Nezabudka or Forget Me Not brooch is a series of blue titanium flowers set upon a Russian bomb shard collected by Drokin during a brief lull in the Russian bombing of his city of Kharkiv, Ukraine. The message, to remember and never forget the victims of this war and the suffering that they felt.
