Architecture drives my creativity yielding to simple and dynamic geometric forms and shapes of jewelry.
I have graduated from Architecture University of Thessaly, in Greece. In 2008 i started to design my first jewellery series after attending seminars jewelry manufacturing in Athens.
The challenge I confront each time is the harmonization and ”communication” of the project with the human body, movement and structure, experimenting with different scales & perspectives,
creating simple lines that embrace and highlight the body and the way it moves.
I do not see jewelry as a decorative object but as interaction with the character and personality of the individual.
Minimalist architecture, textures, colors and lines of the landscape as well as geometric shapes are some of the most important influences that activate my creativity.
Altering the scale of landscapes or landscape elements, massive or tiny can trigger the begging of a new design of a project or a series.
Amphitheater collection is inspired by the top view of the ancient Greek theater and conceived as a connection of architecture and jewelry art. The basic parts of it such as the orchestra and cavea (stairs, cunei) kept intact, create a unit that is repeated and involved in a brooch, necklace, ring or earrings. It is placed on the body sometimes conventionally and sometimes subversively to be adjusted to the human scale. This collection is comprised of ancient Greek elements and modern design, leading to an elegant result with subsistence even if basic design rules are not discrete by the observer.
