Iliana Tosheva

Bulgarian-born multi-disciplinary professional artist and jewellery designer who currently lives and works in London, United Kingdom. After a long career in Modern Languages, I opted for a career change and following my strong interest in contemporary and applied arts, I switched into designing and creating contemporary jewellery. I currently split my time between creating original large-scale abstract oil paintings and designing and creating both fine and mixed media contemporary jewellery. I work in sterling silver, fine silver, 18K golds, copper, copper mesh and lead-free vitreous enamel. My signature pieces are mostly created by either reticulation or etching or by means of manipulating copper mesh coated in multiple layers of lead-free vitreous enamel. Nature inspired, my body of work is very raw and organic and is mimicking nature at its best. Most of my pieces come in small series of works that are informed by my fascination with and exploration of a huge variety of organic shapes and forms and all are marked for my minimalist approach to my creative process, often relying mainly on mark making and chancing the outcome that is often surprisingly different from the initial idea. Aiming at creating quite a dramatic effect, most of my pieces result in seemingly ill-balanced or non-harmonious wearable objects that complete in a unique way the wearer’s personality and looks.
