Moon Love, Interview

English below
Хочу сегодня познакомить вас с автором прекрасных украшений Moon Love, Яной, с которой мне очень повезло быть знакомой. Помните, я недавно показывала моего нового фаоврита по части украшений (освежить память можно вот тут) - эта цепь авторства Яны. Ещё раз спасибо за него!

1. Первым вопросом будет банальный, но, на мой взгляд, необходимый вопрос: как ты начала делать украшения? Какое было первым?

Декабря 2016.
Меня одолевало дикое желание сделать необычный подарок для моей доченьки и дополнить ее новогодний образ. Я решила, что это будет украшение для волос.
На тот момент, я уже видела в интернете фото подобных украшений и меня одолевал вопрос, как его сделать, где купить фурнитуру, а из какой проволоки делать, а как соединить шпильку с плетёным украшением???
Масса вопросов, но, как известно, если ничего не делать, то ничего и не будет, поэтому я решила: «буду делать».
Купила камешки, проволоку, шпильки, бисер и стала пробовать. Через призму опыта могу сказать, фурнитура была ужасная, но на тот момент! она была самой лучшей)
Так я сделала своё первое украшение и безмерно этим горжусь.


2. Как много времени ты тратишь на создание украшения? Как к тебе приходят идеи?

Всегда по-разному.
Иногда идеи 💡 приходят во время еды, сна, основной работы, при уборке дома, при просмотре картинок, приходят, как вспышка и разгораются, оставаясь у меня в памяти, пока я не найду нужные ингредиенты для воплощения этой идеи.
А иногда идеи приходят, когда в магазине я перебираю камешки фурнитуру и тогда нужные элементы я покупаю сразу.
Но бывает и так, что украшение я уже сделала, а оно мне не нравится, не нравится, как смотрится. И тогда я его оставляю и жду, когда придёт озарение, чтоб его переделать, так было и вот с этой цепью.
Первая картинка, это вариант, который мне не нравился. Вторая картинка, это во что я ее превратила.

Процесс создания украшений занимает тоже разное время.
Время изготовления (с учетом наличия всех элементов) занимает от одного дня до нескольких недель.
Например, гребешок 1 день

А корона, две недели


3. Я знаю, что очень любишь делать разные штуки руками. Почему украшения сейчас важнее интереснее, чем, скажем, тарелки? Как другие увлечения и работа влияют на создание украшений? Например, помогает ли кейтеринг (Янина основная работа), скажем, находить интересные сочетания цветов?

Да действительно, у меня много увлечений и я не отказываю себе в удовольствие делать тарелки из эпоксидный смолы, делать декоративные композиции из сухоцветов/живых цветов и тд.
Декорирование мероприятий(быть декоратором-флористом) является для меня мечтой и, чтоб воплотить свою мечту, я сейчас учусь на ивент-дизайнера. А создание украшений для меня это хобби, удовольствие придумать что-то интересноe и порадовать красотой ту самую девушку, для которой эта красота была создана. Есть ещё некий посыл в моих украшениях, я желаю, чтоб девушки дарили себе подарки без повода, покупали то, что им действительно нравиться, радовали себя, создавали свой интересный, прекрасный образ, любили себя просто так💓
Что касается тарелок и всех тех увлечений, которые были вытеснены из моей повседневной жизни.
Вытесняла я их не просто так, а потому что у меня нет возможности развивать это направление. Например: Для изготовления тарелок из смолы необходимо рабочее помещение (комната или съемное помещение) желательно проветриваемое, тк смогла имеет сильный запах, у меня нет такого помещение, поэтому я вытесняла эту увлеченность.
Кейтеринг является моей основной работой и это тоже своего рода творческий процесс, он наводит на определенные действия в сторону моих увлечений. Мое желание сталь декоратором-флористом, пришло ко мне, как раз через работу в кейтеринге.
Относительно украшений, тут кейтеринг, никак не повлиял.
Но если рассмотреть кейтеринг с точки зрения цветовых решений/сочетаний, то тут фантазия играет и приходят новые идеи сочетаний материалов и цветовой гаммы. 

4. Почему ты выбрала название Moon Love? почему Луна? 

Название родилось на работе, в обсуждении с коллегами моего блога украшений.
У меня не было названия бренда долгое время, но мне многие говорили/отмечали, что этот момент важен.
И в один из рабочих дней это название появилось «Moon love», оно наводит меня на что-то фантастическое, неизведанное (все знают, что такое Луна, но никто точно не знает, что именно Луна из себя представляет), любовь к чему-то прекрасному.


5. стандартный вопрос моего блога: Говорят, творческие люди в детстве тоже очень творческие и часто выражают это в каких-то детских шалостях. Например, однажды моя подруга-парикмахер за день подстригла «модно» все свои игрушки. Были ли у тебя что-то подобное?

Я не могу вспомнить что-то, что было именно шалостью. Но я помню, что в детстве не было преград, для создания чего-то, чего у тебя не хватает. Например: у меня не было дивана для кукол, но мне очень хотелось, чтоб он у меня был. Я насобирала коробок из под спичек, склеила их в форме дивана, обклеила их тканью и вуа-ля у меня есть диван для кукол.
 

ENG: Today I want you to meet a person I am proud to know, Yana, aspiring accessories maker with brand Moon Love. Do you remember chain I wear all time, my new favorite accessory (no problem if not, here is dedicated post)? Yana is the person who made it real. Today I am making an interview with her.

1.The first question is probably the most boring one but still important. How did you start making accessories? which one was the first?

December 2016.
I have a very avid desire to make a creative and unexpected gift for my daughter to add to her New Year outfit. (* To understand how Russia celebrates New Year simply change it for Christmas and there you have it). I decided it has to be something to do with her hair.
By that time I have already seen similar hair accessories in the Internet but I didn't know how to make it, where to buy the components, how to connect the parts. I had millions of questions but as we all well know of if you do nothing, nothing happens. That is why I decided to "make it happen".

I bought stones, thrills, beads and started trying. Now I can say the components were horrible but at the time it was the best I could get. That is how I made my first accessory and it makes me feel proud.

2. How much time do you need to create a piece? How do get the inspiration?

It is always unique.
Sometimes I get ideas during my sleep, lunch, main job, doing laundry. while looking through images. The idea comes, flashes like a lighting and stay in my memory until I find means to make it real.
Sometimes I get the idea when I am in the shop, browsing through the wires. In that case I buy everything I need right away.
But sometimes it happens so that I make an accessory and I don't like what I made. In that case I leave it be and wait until I get my ''flash' and realize what is needed to be done about it. That is exactly what happened with the chain below. The first image is the original version I felt 'wrong' and second is the final result.

Overall the process takes different time as well. It varies (if we have all the components at hand) from one day to several weeks.
For example the comb takes one day and crown two weeks.

 

3. Я знаю, что очень любишь делать разные штуки руками. Почему украшения сейчас важнее интереснее, чем, скажем, тарелки? Как другие увлечения и работа влияют на создание украшений? Например, помогает ли кейтеринг, скажем, находить интересные сочетания цветов?
3 I know you love hand crafting. Why accessories are main right now. why is it a priority and not plates for example? How do your other hobbies and work affect your accessory making? For example, does catering (Yana's day job) help you, for example, finding interesting color combinations? 
 
Yes indeed, I have quite a number of hobbies and curiosities, I don't deny myself a pleasure of making plate from epoxy resin, dried or fresh flower compositions and other. My dream is to become a florist-decorator for events and to make it real I study for event design. Accessory making is a major hobby of mine, a joy of creating something interesting and giving away the pleasure of beauty to the person, most likely a lady to whom this beauty was made. There is an undertone in my accessories, I want people to me gifts for themselves with no reason, buy just for themselves, love themselves, treat themselves, creating a unique beautiful look and love themselves for that and just because.
As for plates and other hobbies I no longer go for in daily life. I did push them away because I couldn't evolve with it and in it. For example, to make epoxy resin plate you need a special place to work (a room or a rented location), with good ventilation because epoxy resin has a very strong and distinctive scent. I don't have such a location so I decided to give it up.
Catering is my main, day job and it is creative in a way as well. It helps me to nourish my interests, for example my dream job of florist-decorator came from it. As for accessories I don't really see the connection.


4. Why did you chose this particular brand name, Moon Love? Why Moon?

This naming came from my workplace, while discussing my accessory blog with colleagues.
I didn't have a proper name for a long time and many people addressed that issue, noticing how important naming is.
And during one of these days there came a name 'Moon Love'. I have a feeling of something unknown, fantasy (everybody knows what Moon is but nobody actually felt Moon for real), it's love for something beautiful
 
5. Standrt question from my blog. People way, most of the creative adults have been not less creative kids and often it turned out to be poured in life in unexpected way. For example, my hairdresser friend spent a day making a new 'stylish' hair cuts to all of her dolls and toys. Did you do something like that as a child?

I can't really think of something that was unpleasant and destructive but I do remember I didn't have any limits for creativity. I didn't have a sofa of something like that for my dolls but I wanted one badly. I didn't think twice and gathered boxes for matches, glued them together in a shape of a sofa and glues some material over it. And there you have it: a sofa for my dolls!


Have a nice day,
Lyosha

  18. Beautiful pieces. I absolutely LOVE the simplicity of the comb. I had a hair clip that I purchased which looks similar to this (different colours/set up, but a similar style) and I LOVE wearing it for weddings and fancier events. There's something about including it with my outfit that always gives me that extra boost of confidence.

Christmas week

Christmas is just around the corner and I am personally super happy and excited with all the decor and holiday spirit around. I totally feel it and enjoy it a lot. I took this photo doing Christmas shopping with my mom. We shared lots of laughs, girly talks and did the present buying job. I have a soft spot for Christmas and holidays I know how to celebrate (decoration and dressing up are my main loves) so I can't really pass the beauties there. I asked my mother to take a quick shot of mine and even took off my mask for a minute for it to look the best. Don't worry, there was literally no one around (it's just opened) and I was changing my mask anyway. Bonus: a part of our tree and lemon cakes from last weekend I was wearing: Arny Praht backpack Uniqlo jeans Fila sneakers not branded and very old sweater   Have a nice day, Lyosha  

I love this sweater

  Did you ever have this moment? You walk into the shop and you see the item and.. you see this item only, everything else is blank and the next moment you are buying it. That is exactly what happened to me. I love this sweater so much! It's so cute! I love the bright and vibrant blue color and absolutely ridiculous and uber cute dog (they say it's a dog) or at least someone canine. I think I will wear this sweater all the time mixing it with Christmas alpaca sweater and fox sweater from the same brand. I also wear classic winter patterns as well but it's not fun enough at least to me. Also I think bright blue looks wonderful with white snow, don't you think? I originally took these photo for instagram Nivea review. I don't plan on turning this post into full term review but I can say this xxl face wash edition is pretty nice. I use face wash very often (I wash my face after every walk outside and especially after visiting public place because of you-know-what thr

Ruza day trip

Can you believe it? I totally forgot to post about this trip! And I loved it so much!  It was September and I went on a day trip not only with my husband but my parents as well. As well Kolomna later on it was a blast! I enjoyed it so much and I learned how fun it is making day trip with my parents and their most adorable pup. Ruza is located in Moscow region a little less than 100 km from it. It is a very old and very rural town. There was not much left of very old times but we did enjoy a beautiful park and house all over the place. Also it was not far from Ruza, place where Russia WWII war hero Zoya Kosmodemiyanskaya was born. She was a captured and tortured to tell what she knew but she didn't give in and was executed for it. I liked her cute and very peaceful memorial in the town. Fun fact, I live couple of blocks away from the street names after her and her brother (he dies in the same wars as well being a solder). It was a little windy in the morning so I originally wore a
