Ilgiz F

Or more completely, Ilgiz Fazulzyanov

This bit on his enamel technique is worth noting:

“Once the gold is cast into the shape of say a ring or pendant, Ilgiz takes a pencil and draws directly onto the metal, creating the guide for both the underlying engraving as well the enamel, applied with paintbrushes with only a handful of bristles. It takes a single-minded intensity and devotion to perfection to create these miniature works of art, but just one glance to remember these jewels forever.”  From a Telegraph article by Maria Doulton 10/23/2014

But especially confounding is this series commissioned by Bovet, and unveiled in an exhibit at the Kremlin, his Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse watches painted Limoges style in enamel.
