CREATIVE DIRECTOR AND FOUNDER
Majdan Rocks is jewellery that inspires conversation, draws on emotions and challenges tradition. The woman behind the brand is Iwona Majdan, a professional artist, mother and jewellery designer obsessed by pushing boundaries and challenging conventions. With Polish roots, a Canadian upbringing, and London as her home base, Iwona has successfully fused a background in provocative situational art with designing jewellery that is daring and edgy, yet completely beautiful in form.
Iwona is a trained artist and performer who, several years ago, created a situational art piece called ‘The Dinner Project’. Every Sunday for a year, she would invite herself to have dinner with a stranger at their home. The piece touched on issues of trust, the desire for human connection while challenging social conventions.
Iwona has cleverly fused this art-form into the jewellery that she designs – elegant and provocative statement pieces that have become her signature. Having founded Majdan Rocks in Autumn 2012, her bold designs quickly sparked interest among fashion savvy women. Her jewellery has already won the attention of some high-profile celebrities, including Nicole Scherzinger and Christine Bleakley and her creations are sold in renowned stores such as Luisa Via Roma.
Iwona holds an MA from Goldsmiths College in Fine Arts and a diploma in Jewellery Manufacturing from Holts Academy of Jewellery.
