Inuk / Canada
Lavinia Van Heuvelen studied Jewellery and Metalwork at Nunavut Arctic College. After graduating, she launched LVH Jewellery. Lavinia makes most of her work out of sterling silver and natural materials. Working with raw materials gifted or purchased from local hunters and what is around her in the north inspires vVan Heuvelen’s work. Much of her jewellery directly references traditional Inuit themes and imagery, tied with silver and materials from the land. vVan Heuvelen’s work has won several awards and travelled around Canada and overseas. Van Heuvelen’s work is available at galleries across Canada.
