Ieva Jankovska is a Latvian jewellery designer and maker currently based in Dundee. The duality of her identity is evident throughout her designs that merge traditional silversmithing techniques with modern technologies, like 3D printing and enamelling; contrasting natural forms with stark, geometric shapes and enhancing minimal aesthetic with fine details. As the visual inspiration in Ieva’s work is mostly derived from nature, time spent indoors observing the world through windows has prompted her to use architectural elements, such as rigid frames, straight lines and flat planes.
Recently Ieva joined the newly founded Double Door Studios in Dundee alongside an exciting collection of fellow jewellers, Islay Spalding, Holly McAfee and Christina Vernon.
Ieva Jankovska graduated from the jewellery and metal design department at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 2018. Since then she has undertaken artist residencies in Dundee and Glasgow, taken part in several exhibitions, including The 4th J at WASPS Studios in Dundee, AUTOR Contemporary Art Jewellery Fair in Bucharest, Romania and Elements Festival in Edinburgh.
