Beneath the glittering golden domes of Moscow's Kremlin, a sparkling collection of jewellery is now adding lustre to the museum's interior. We meet the first jewellery designer to give a solo exhibition there since Faberge in 1917.

Enamel jewellery on show in Kremlin 

"Jewels Inspired by Nature" features works created by the Russian jewellery designer Ilgiz Fazulzyanov over the last twenty years, along with his sketches and drawings.

"These objects are made in such a technique that… there are not so many jewellers who know this technique and use it in their works," said Ilgiz Fazulzyanov, jeweller.

"Another thing that unites them is that every object represents my feelings, my thoughts, everything that happens to me during the day, the week, the month, the year, everything is here. It's a whole story of a certain period of life."

The artist's love of nature is evident in his recurring themes of flowers and birds.

The exhibition also includes enamelled dials with miniature paintings the designer created for Swiss watchmaker Bovet.

"You know the art of Bovet is through human-beings, artisans… (pausing for translation) uniqueness, sincerity, emotion (pausing for translation). This ability of Ilgiz to do jewellery, to do a dial in the pure tradition of the 19th century, makes him a genius artisan," said Pascal Raffy, Bovet owner.
