The Story of Ikona Jewellery Studio
Ikona Jewellery Studio is a small jewellery workshop, the brainchild of Julia Trandafir, graduate of The Romanian Gemological Centre and alumnus of the Jewellery and Silversmithing BA at The Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design, London.
Our workshop is located in the heart of Maramures, the land of immortal traditions and fairytale landscapes. We are invariably inspired by our surroundings and passionate about translating them into precious metal pieces of adornment, immortal tokens of nature, tradition and affection.
We are in fact a one-women show, everything is either made from scratch or in colaboration with other local businesses, carefully hand finished in our studio. We aspire to create affordable luxury products, innovate, and constantly update and improve the online shopping experience.
We believe in handmade products that support collaborative and sustainable design. We deeply respect the ancestral traditional work techniques, blending them with contemporary technology.
