Meet the Designer
❛❛ I have always been fascinated by opposing forces and particularly by the challenging dialogue between fragility and strength. This duality is what I’m trying to encapsulate in my work; the delicate feminine nature into a durable personal adornment❜❜
I am strongly influenced by the history of ancient cultures especially the greek and roman civilization as well as organic and natural elements seen in my surroundings. Each of the collections is formed around a narrative, sometimes paying homage to an ancestral era/historical time period.
THE STORY BEHIND
From the vision behind the design to the construction, each piece has its own story to tell.
I intensely long my jewellery to provoke emotions; emotions derived from personal experiences and memories. Thereupon an emotional connection is born between the wearer and the piece with the latter embodying the person’s unique character.
The thrill of shaping textures and forms out of a single continuous line of wire fascinates me.Through a series of experiments and trials I developed/ adapted the old knitting technique to construct flexible structures with dense patterns. Further traditional practices allow me to manipulate and form the metal to complete the piece to perfection.
Each piece is brought to life after hours of meticulous labor and is entirely unique and un-replicable as the patterns that the silver wire traces are always singular and exclusive.
Preserving tradition is essential to me; it’s one of the things that allow people to feel connected with their heritage. My aim is to design contemporary yet timeless pieces for forceful women; women who cherish tradition and they are proud of their origins, their values and their achievements.
