“bijoux”

Earrings, necklaces and bracelets made out of plastic rope (the one we use for hanging washed clothes out), wire and semi-precious stones.

The project started 10 years ago, when I first made the jewelry. The idea was to create something out of nothing, a jewel that “adorns” (=pure sense) only by its appearance, form and color and not by its value.

Then came the need for a catalog, so I took pictures and made the layout. For me obviously the layout concept was: “hanging the jewelry out to dry”…in a microcosm of playmobils, toys, animals and pixels..

In the end the catalog became a soundscaped video-art presentation that accompanied the jewelry during an exhibition in π. 37 art gallery.

The jewels themselves went on sale at the art-shop of the Benaki museum. The video presentation was shown at the Athens Video Art festival (2007) and the Pocket Theater festival (2007)

Thanx for visiting ( * -* )

  1. What an excellent plan,maybe even a cunning plan!

  2. Love the idea of the jewelery “hanging out to dry”. My lovely muse and I are hoping to travel to Athens, Mykonos and Santorini in May, where could I go to find your jewelry?

    • Thank you for the follow, likes and comment; I really appreciate it.
      May is a great time to be in the greek islands (…especially the popular ones) and I hope you will come :)
      As for my jewelry, this was an old project so I only have some pieces left in my house…
      Since then my jewelry is made to order -for friends and …myself; I currently work as a graphic designer thus jewelry making became more like a hobby. But I plan on posting my latest creations soon :)
