Yulia Kholdina is an Artist and recent BA Jewellery Designer graduate of CSM. She aims for a balanced coexistence of both commercial and artistic elements within her practice, characterised by the impossibility of drawing a straight line between the two.

Her work is mainly driven by a conceptual attitude toward issues of value and context, made visible through a relentless investigation of materials, shapes and volumes. From the less obvious ones to the more established solutions that have been historically consolidated within the industry, she aims at finding aesthetic alternatives that often involve unexpected components. The desirability of the outcome is a question of significant importance to the success of Yulia’s creations.
