Ludmila Ivanova has been a jewelry designer since 1976. Born in Bulgaria, Ludmila moved to Houston in 1990, and for more than a decade she operated the Bijou Galerie & Studio in Montrose.

Every piece of jewelry she makes is designed and hand crafted by her and incorporates silver, gold and semi-precious and precious stones.
