As a budding drum artisan and toddler mom, I had no time to spare in 2002. But materials I collected over the years, some pieces of art in themselves, beckoned to be worn.
Enter Lila de Chaves. Her eye-opening workshop at the Benaki Museum endowed me with a plethora of skills for "building" with metal. This was my first communion with a flourishing and supportive coven of handcrafted-jewellery devotees.
Then came the Meet Market - a place to test my work, to meet my people, to continually raise the bar. Three ongoing series propelled Skinny Legs' monthly participation for a solid decade - Beginner's Luck (vintage poker chips set in precious metals), View Carré (cinematic film bracelets) and Meander (pleated leather cuff bracelets),
Since then, I've collaborated with museum shops, art galleries, music festivals and boutiques in Greece and abroad, creating limited or one-of-a-kind pieces with precious metals, leather, cinematic film and found objects.
When I'm not crafting drums, I play with the tools and materials in my tiny workshop. Often it's a custom jewellery order that offers the impetus. Sometimes it's the materials themselves that tempt me, seldom a technical drawing and never thoughts for the season's collection.
Like my drums, my jewellery is spare, eclectic and enduring. I use both traditional and cutting-edge techniques, as required.
