Snake Bones brand is a creation of the Russian-born artist Anatoly Startsev and his sons, Anton and Ilya. They established it out of the desire to make well-crafted designer jewelry that is luxurious, yet possessing a distinctive “rock ‘n’ roll” character.
Anatoly’s ingenuity as a jewelry designer reflects his multifaceted artistic experience working in a variety of mediums - painting, mosaic, metalwork, stained glass. Throughout Anatoly’s fifty-year career, he was recognized with numerous awards and participation in prestigious exhibitions.
After moving to the United States in the early nineties, Anatoly worked with many high-end jewelry brands and designers on developing original jewelry lines. At the same time, he grew his client base for one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces.
Many styles developed over the years are now available through Snake Bones as limited edition pieces along with a new jewelry line of original designs. Snake Bones’ designs reference creations of nature as well as popular culture, vintage, and found objects. Inspiration can come from an antique coin found at a flea market or a fossil discovered during travels.
We believe that being adorned with artworks, a person forms a special relationship with the artist and the jewelry piece becomes a talisman endowed with special powers. Snake Bones’s designs are crafted out of solid precious metals, gems, leather, fossils and other natural objects. All of our unique creations are crafted in our New York City studio. These objects are valued by the customers from around the world and destined to be treasured for many years to come.
