From abstract images to wild colors, browse our selection of Russian artist pendants with a contemporary theme and find the perfect focal pendant for your next jewelry design. Russian artists use traditional methods for these pendants, incorporating many layers of paint and lacquer that's applied over days and sometimes weeks. The result is a finely-detailed piece of art displayed onto a gemstone, either black onyx or carnelian. Because each one is hand-painted, every image will be slightly different, meaning you can own a unique, original design.
