“At this exhibition I was awarded first place for the composition of five pieces of jewelry “Balsayat”, named after the heroine of the destan “Sayat and Hemra”,” says the winner in the nomination “women's national jewelry” Aijemal Charyeva. - For Sayat, I made a "guppa" - a headdress made with patterns from the outlines of horses and girls, while giving the "guppa" an elongated shape, now almost none of the jewelers makes such. My goal is to preserve the endangered form of jewelry and bring novelty to it. "
