AWKed Design and Jewelry Studio was founded by designer and artist Dmitriy Polyakov in the summer of 2010. It began as a channel for capturing the spontaneous creative energy of children’s art. In his Art With Kids Studio, Dmitriy collaborated with children to create art works that expressed their free imagination and unique vision. Dmitriy then developed new techniques to preserve the children’s original art, by translating their drawings into designs for handcrafted cloisonné enamel jewelry. The AWKed Design collection builds on this legacy, offering existing designs based on children’s drawings or the opportunity to create a truly unique piece.
