Designer

The Goldsmiths Company

Biography:

Milena Kovanovic set up her eponymous label soon after graduating from Central Saint Martin’s. Her highly acclaimed pieces have attracted numerous commissions and press attention, epitomising style, originality and opulence.

Influenced by the visual references of art, photography and the natural world, Milena’s designs are constantly developing in fresh and new directions. Natural forms and textures play an important part in her handcrafted pieces, which often explore form, tactility and colour.

Fascinated by materials and processes, she explores various techniques in her jewellery, from forging and folding to more alchemic approaches such as electroforming. Constantly refining her working practices through observation and experimentation to create sophisticated, intriguing pieces.

A self confessed hoarder of all things quirky who took an early interest in science and antiquity, Milena turned her lifelong passion for gemstones into a career by qualifying as a gemmologist. She uses her expertise in stones to further enhance her designs into original and wearable jewellery.

Creating limited edition collections and one off pieces of jewellery in gold, silver and gemstones, Milena also offers a full bespoke service on request.
