Imperfect Grace was founded on the philosophy that qualities that makes us unique and different should be treasured.
Inspired by uniqueness and versatility, Imperfect Grace jewelry is rooted in simple elegance and timeless edge. Designed for the modern woman who is always on the go, my goal is to create pieces that are different from anything else you own, but that would complement your jewelry and give you an opportunity to express your individual style.
Another big source of inspiration for Imperfect Grace is my heritage, being born and raised in Ukraine, I wanted to pay homage to my roots by incorporating patterns of Ukrainian embroidery into my designs.
My love affair with jewelry started at a young age - I collected it, obsessed over it, and created my own designs out of any vintage pieces I could get my hands on. After graduating from college and landing my first job in the corporate world, I started filling my creative void by taking metalsmithing classes at the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit. It felt nothing short of empowering to hold a torch and bring my designs to life. After my move to Chicago, I continued exploring various metalsmithing techniques by taking metals classes at a local art center.
Now I am fortunate to work with a talented team of artisans who specialize in all aspects of fabrication and production who turn my sketches into fine jewelry made with the highest quality craftsmanship. To me, quality is of outmost importance and I personally inspect every piece before it goes to its new owner.
Launching Imperfect Grace is a realization of a life-long dream, and I hope that you will find a piece that will complement your own jewelry collection and will inspire you to exemplify your individual style in a whole new way.
If you are wondering about the name...
Over the years, I've learned time and time again that striving for perfection is not only boring, but also is a waste of time. After all, we are all human and therefore we are not perfect, our imperfections make us who we are and beautiful in our own way, let’s embrace them. Grace, or that simple elegance, is a quality that I truly admire in others, and aspire for all of my jewelry to represent.
