  • The wild olive branch used to make the “kotinos”/wreath of the most honorable distinction offered to athletes in the Olympic Games. For this rewarding tribute of respect, the olive branches came from the trees outside of Zeus’s temple, cut only with a golden pair of scissors. Hand-sculpted in detail, meant to imitate the remnant fossils imprinted on shales, still surviving in time.
  SHALES is a hybrid capsule collection, inspired by the summertime spent in the Cyclades. Created while having the history, the geomorphology, and the culture of the islands in mind, these 5 items feature different characteristics of profound symbolism and interpretation. The necklace forms a perfect circle around the neck, depicting the islands belonging to the Cycladic area of the Aegean sea, surrounding the wearer in the way summer memories do. The organic forms of the land are meticulously captured via digital micro-sculpting linking each piece to one another into one polymorphic jewel. The seemingly random scattered golden shales, excellently mismatch one another, same as they actually do in reality. The 4 rings are carefully hand-sculpted, meant to imitate and interpret elements of fossils left on the shales, same as imprints found in nature.
