As a trained artist and performer, Iwona Majdan is no stranger to challenging conventions. In fact, for one of her early situational art pieces, “The Dinner Project,” Iwona invited herself to a stranger’s home every Sunday for dinner. The yearlong piece explored issues of trust and a desire for human connection. It also pushed social boundaries. This subversive attitude is evident in her jewelry line, Majdan Rocks, that launched in 2012. There are two collections available to shop: Rebellion, marked by chunky silhouettes and edgy angles, and Love Bites, statement-making pieces with bite-mark impressions. The unexpected design of the Love Bites collection skyrocketed the chunky bite necklace and the subtle pendant version to the top of my wishlist.
