Born and raised near Paris, France, I headed south and studied at the Villa Arson in Nice, School of Art and Research where I graduated in 1994.

After more than 10 years acting in the contemporary art field (see the Art section for a selection of solo & group shows I curated), I started making jewelry from found materials and old jewelries collected from flea markets and antique shops around the world, an habit I had since i was a teenager; I created O jewellery in 2009 and established my brand in 2012 with the launch of my website, e-shop and studio.

I live between Athens and Paris and I am endlessly in search of vintage materials I use to create unique pieces, carefully collected and assembled by myself.

 

O Jewellery is on sale at the Benaki Museum (Athens, Piraeus building),Rebecca Camhi Gallery (Athens) and Waikiki concept store (Andros Island, Greece); it has been presented at Vamiali's Gallery (Athens), Melas-Papadopoulos Gallery (Athens), Occhi Concept Store (Athens), Daxtilithra Shop (Aegina Island, Greece), MOFU vintage & contemporary design (Athens), Yiorgos Eleftheriades Space (Kolonaki, Athens) and Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art (Athens & Thessaloniki, Greece) as well as Galerie Salon, Ofr bookstore/gallery and Yume Store/By Sophie in Paris.
