    Making jewelery is an endless game.The result, sometimes controlled sometimes unexpected, gives me answers to questions that Icould not manage to capture with my mind. Despite the metal is my priority I like experimenting with different materials combine them without limits without thinking if they are valuable or not. Inspiration is everywhere.The processing [...]

    Womanhood All my life I was very interested about how women behave and play roles. The attitudes, a set of attributes make feminity or womanhood associated with girls and women. Femininity is socially constructed, but made up of both socially-defined and biologically-created factors. This makes it distinct from the definition of the biological female sex, as both men [...]

      What will kosmos say?   It is a question of our times.   The current social/political struggles emphasize the need to rethink and rebuild ways of operating within the society. Only with the participation of the individuals and their active interaction can eventually occur a change within the collective. This work talks [...]

   Photograph by M.L. “Matter + Vessels” Exhibition at Amaranto Joies in Barcelona Vessels are crypt-like. Matter is unfolding. Vessels occupy space but are hollow. Matter is producing space. Vessels stand still. Matter is flexible, almost fluid, always changing. Vessels contain and can be contained at times. Matter when contained is violated. How intense is [...]

    I think of jewelry design as a combination of line and color and material that is each time the result of a given frame of mind, of different mental and emotional states.                                                                                               It is the lines and forms and shapes that we encounter all around us in the natural world, in the street, [...]

    My work is inspired by architecture and geometry. I design jewelry that assembles in an abstracted form, creating a multitude of viewpoints plus a multitude of applications. Originally what leads me in making innovative forms is that I am interested in the reflection of the viewer.               [...]

          The process of designing a piece of jewelry or an object is a journey in time. I follow a path through emotions, concepts and images. It is an ensemble of elements, powered by memories, experiences and myths. My work is a medium, through which I aim to communicate with other [...]

    5 DEGREES OF DIVERGENCE “A link of associations typically diverges in meaning and focus” (Onar Am). Imagine a conversation where you wander from one related topic to another. 5 related topics later you might be talking about something completely different than what you started with. This could be considered analogical to being 5 [...]

"Chained" Exhibition by Liana Pattihis at The Benaki Museum

      “Alysodeméno” – “Chained”, represents a body of work, a journey in time which links pieces created from 2005 to today, from my early experimentations with enamel, through to ‘Adapted Patterns’, a collection based on the simple schematic linear patterns relating to various types of Greek traditional aprons and costumes. The title ‘Alysodeméno’ [...]

"Kosmimata: The Art of Goldsmithing" by Sophia Georgiopoulou

  It is almost a year to the day since Kosmimata, my studio, opened its doors to the world. This edition is a record of the work designed and crafted during this year, December 2010- December 2011, of the goals met and the goals missed and of the artistic tribulations of a Byzantinist turned goldsmith. [...]

I met Sophia Georgiopoulou on Crafthaus and fell in love with her pieces using the granulation method. She likes to reinterpret ancient Mediterranean traditions of jewelry-making and it would be great if one day we could see her working process. He conegut a la Sophia Georgiopoulou a Crafthaus i m’he enamorat de les seves peces [...]

M’és difícil expressar el molt que m’han agradat les poques peces que he pogut veure d’aquesta joiera. Records de la història de la seva terra natal, Creta, amb el regust del mar i les paraules perdudes o potser trobades, el contrast de formes, els amagatalls. Em semblen poemes visuals.
