And her back and neck were decorated with a necklace made by a Russian jeweler. It is noteworthy that the actress received a cherished statuette, and Yana Raskovalova - fame throughout the world.

Student and model
Before the first collection of jewelry, the girl had to make her way from the model to the wife of a businessman. St. Petersburg is the place where Yana Raskovalova was born. Biography of the girl begins her story in a fairly rich family: her father is one of the leaders of the organization called "Spetsstroy of Russia." As a child, the little girl not only studied at school, but also attended a musical institution in the piano class. Then she seriously took up the study of art history and the history of design development.
As a student, Yana Raskovalova participates in the Miss St. Petersburg competition. The girl's amazing resemblance to Brigitte Bardot did not go unnoticed, and the title "Vice Miss" won the bright beauty. The girl's father was in shock. However, she herself was very pleased with the comparison with the French actress.
From Russia to Europe and back
After a while, Yana Raskovalova wins a design competition, which was held at the institute, and leaves for Italy. There she will have to develop clothes for a large knitted brand. The beauty of a Russian girl was appreciated abroad: a rather adult Turkish businessman falls in love with him without a memory. However, she had already given her heart to the Petersburger Vadim.
With a businessman from the northern capital, Yana Raskovalova met at one of the parties. Vadim at first sight fell in love with a bright beauty. On her return from Italy, he offered Yana a hand and a heart. And the young people got married. Then they had one after another children: Veronica, Vadim and Vasilisa. The latter was born a few years ago.
The origin of the jewelry brand
Yana Raskovalova's husband became the impulse that spurred the woman to create her first collection. He initially helped her financially, and, more importantly, morally.
The first collection of jewelry Yana was released in November 2011. Since that moment its products are manufactured under the Yana brand. The venue of the exhibition was the Podium Concept Store, located on the Kuznetsky Most. The debut collection was dedicated to the younger daughter of the jeweler - Vasilisa. That is why the whole hall was decorated with large and small vases with field cornflowers.
Materials used by the girl
Almost in each collection of the jeweler there are cameos, which are decorated with diamonds and other precious, and also semiprecious stones. This is her original card. Cameos are made from various materials: precious stones and even seashells. These elements adorn rings, pendants and even hairpins. And, of course, all products are strictly exclusive. Each accessory is the result of painstaking handmade craftsmen from all over Russia. At the moment, the Yana brand employs more than 100 young talents from St. Petersburg, Moscow, Yekaterinburg and other cities.
