Fri 7 June | 12:30pm

Bulgarian writer Ina Christova’s debut novel is based on the true story of Alma Pihl, the only female jewellery designer at the House of Fabergé during the age of silver culture in St Petersburg. Several of Alma’s most famous creations, including the Winter Egg, were exhibited at the critically acclaimed V&A exhibition in 2021. Ina’s tale is a haunting and evocative account of one of Russia’s darkest periods of history at the turn of the twentieth century.
