About Snake Bones
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 possesses 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.
The family moved to the United States in the nineties and now all of their fine jewelry pieces are crafted in their New York City studio.
