Elizaveta Gnatchenko and Grace Cross have been announced as the two winners in Tateossian’s jewellery design competition and will have their collections exclusively available from Tateossian stores in 2011.

Russian born Gnatchenko is inspired by her admiration for the Imperial Russian court and creates elaborate jewel-encrusted pieces that are unique in style and intricate in details. Grace Cross draws from English heritage with a Victorian feel throughout her work.
