Jewelry inspired by Natural Organic forms

My name is Maria,

I'm an Artist Painter, I studied Art Painting in School of Fine Arts in Greece.
Ever since I can remember I always paint and was making things with my hands.

I love Organic forms coming from nature.

A few years ago that the circumstances were such that I could not paint, but my need for creation was great, I started making jewelry.
My need was not satisfied by composing ready accessories and stones, I wanted to make microsculpture and create a jewel from the beginning.
So wax and Silver was originally my favorite materials.

I make my models in wax and then cast them in silver, I also work on sheets of silver to make my jewelry.

I spent endless hours on the internet and have read countless books, learning the techniques of silver.
So I can say that I am self-taught.

I built my little home studio where I spend basically most of my time.

My day job is Art Teacher in High School and when I'm not at school you'll find me at my studio making jewelry or painting or making ceramics, or dolls, or miniatures.....or...or...
