Romana Ivanek is a graphic designer, and making jewelry is her hobby. She lives and works in Zagreb, Croatia, and says, "if you don't know where Croatia is and never visited, you don't know what you're missing!" She has five nieces who are the reason that she started making jewelry. As she explains, "It was a real challenge getting them Christmas gifts, because I like my gifts to be original and one of a kind."
Romana was one of the winners of Facet's GEOMETRY Design Challenge, where jewelry makers were asked to create a piece representing that magical place where mathematics and art intersect.
