story of iebis

My name is Ieva ( with i, not L ) actually people constantly spell my name wrong. :D  iebis = ieva

My grandmother used to call me iebis when I was a child, it's not even a proper word in Latvian, but I really like it, because that's something unique, only my closest friends and family knows the meaning of it. :) Fun fact: my sister still hates the name of my brand though and she doesn't want to work with me because of that. :D 

 

Actually, I get the inspiration from myself and from my previous designs, I get so many cool ideas when I look back to my old earring styles, and it really makes me want to upgrade them using other shapes, colors and even materials. 

So the main material I use is polymer clay - a type of hardenable non-toxic modeling clay which is used to make toys, plastic trays, kitchen supplies, pens, even furniture, and window frames. And then I assembled all the premade beads with brass jewelry findings. I use brass because I like the color of it, but I must say that with time it can start to tarnish a bit, but it can easily be cleaned using toothpaste or baking soda. :)

 

I made my first Etsy shop 3 years ago, in the spring of 2015. I listed my first few jewelry pieces, which was also made out of polymer clay, but made my first sale on 2016. 2 years I had a couple of sales in a month, I was obsessed with monochrome color palette and minimalism, I guess not many people liked that. (Back then I was a student, and now I wonder how I even managed to had time for that hahaha. :D )

The jewelry that you see now I only started making in this year's March. Not that long time ago. I somehow started to use more colors (obviously because of spring :D and I guess that's one thing that inspired me then), but I still kept that minimalist approach in my designs. And people fall in love with them IMMEDIATELY. I had my first 10 sales in one week and that made me SO HAPPY! I'm really proud that I have finally found my own unique style in this huge jewelry world! :)
