Iwona Tamborska

International art jeweler, whose works are mosty recognized by the use of insects as part of the jewelry.

The artist creates in a style inspired by the early XX century art, calling it “the new art nouveau”.

Her creativity shows characteristic etherealness, dynamics and an intentional lack of symmetry. Strongly inspired by entomology, botany, biochemistry, astrophysics, graphic arts and ethnology.


All her works are hand made in a single number and the unique base for their creation are such materials as: tropical butterflies, beetles and real flowers.
She specializes in fusing traditional jewelry techniques with the Metal Clay technique.
She uses an art name “Rękami Stworzone”, which in Polish means “Hand Created”.
