Evgeniia Balashova is a contemporary jewellery designer and maker based in Glasgow. She graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in 2016 and continued to set up her practice shortly after. Eve creates her unique pieces using a combination of 3d printing and metalworking skills, bringing tradition and innovation together in unique, captivating compositions.
Eve works with 3d printed nylon, a light and strong material, which allows her to create large scale architectural statement works. Her work is tactile, bold and colourful and designed with ease of wear in mind as all pieces are light and durable. Her vast inspiration ranges from repetitive geometry to natural motifs which she translates into digital language to create futuristic jewellery. Each one of her pieces is a celebration of colour, texture and movement, with each piece carefully dyed by hand to create smooth, seamless colour transitions. Her extensive palette is created by mixing various shades of dye together to create unique and sophisticated combinations. These subtle hues are complemented by handcrafted precious elements, which she creates using traditional metalworking skills – piercing, scoring and folding, soldering. Eve works from her studio in the West end of Glasgow, creating commissions in bespoke colours and launching limited releases throughout the year.
