About IO&U

"We open our world to you to share our stories"


IO&U is a group of contemporary jewellery and gemstone artists from the University of Trier in Idar-Oberstein, Germany. We have come together as twelve female emerging artists from all over the world and will be showcasing our graduate collections in 2020. Our works differ visually and conceptually as each artist pushes the boundaries of contemporary jewellery with handmade pieces unique to the artist. While we come from different cultures, our paths have crossed in IO. As a result, we have developed as artists alongside each other in camaraderie.
