Biography

I am an emerging jewellery designer born in the northwest mountains of Greece. Growing up in a a historically filled city growing on the banks of a lake that is riddled with legends and surrounded by mountains I have a natural propensity to the mysterious and mythical.

It is after a career in business that I explored my creative impulses designing and making jewellery. My work is inspired by the beauty and energy of the underwater world as I have seen it through my diving.

My work is a combination of wax sculpting cast in silver, and one off fabricated pieces. There is a considered use of shapes and colours of stones to help construct the impression of creatures and objects that would be encounter in the sea.
