For me Joya Barcelona was the event which two years ago, as a communication assistant of jewellery designer Maria Tsimpiskaki, introduced me to the wonderful and most expressive world of Contemporary Jewellery. This year I am extremely honoured to be chosen from Joya Barcelona 2014 jury to present my collection “Katoptron: Reflections of memory” to the audience of the fair, among a large number of talented well known, as well as emerging artists and students. The most certain thing is that this show is going to be a high precious experience!
