"What fascinates me the most is investigating and experimenting with innovative materials and techniques, and their implementation in jewellery making. "

bio

I was born in 1982, in Athens, where I currently live and work. I studied Physics at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and I am a trained musician. Since 2012, I have taken a strong interest in the expressive potential of artistic jewellery, especially as a means of communicating my emotional and existential concerns. My training in silversmithing techniques began on 2012 through working with Maria Tsimpiskaki (artistic jewellery designer).
