Grecia

In my work I embrace both traditional as well as modern techniques and find great inspiration in the ensuing dialogues that my art reflects love transforming simple objects into art and the surprise caused by the unexpected charge objects and surfaces with human personalities and traits generate new materials with a child’s curiosity, weighed down by time melancholy.
The outcome is contradictory, personal and political, a cry for freedom.
I don’t always see limits between different disciplines as I restlessly experiment on new art practices try to push the limits of how jewelry is still produced and perceived as an "object" and how it is connected to a limited understanding of beauty.

I am the outcome of my story:
Since childhood I have had the passion of collecting and observing, fueling my creativity.
Texture, colors, volume, reflections, smell, taste, were some of my criteria to keep or toss my findings.
I used to create new objects using the ones I found and I never outgrew that characteristic.
My studies were in History, Archaeology & History of Art (BA, National Kapodistrian University of Athens) and they have shaped my knowledge on human and material history. At the same time, I have had, design, classic and contemporary jewelry seminars as I needed to understand my creative process and become technically skilled in order to transform my artifacts into quality pieces.
I have been awarded with the Bronze A’ Design Award as a member of the Urban Fiction design team as well as a Special Mention from the Italian association of contemporary jewelry (AGC) at the competition Jewels in Ferment 2016. Recently, I have won a scholarship from Krama Institute of Contemporary Jewelry.
