A JEWEL MADE IN GREECE
In 2013, the art designer Mary Samoli realised her idea of creating a flexible and outstanding platform in which Greek designers and jewelry producers would participate. The first exhibition of modern Greek jewelry took place. A large number of Greek jewelry designers presented during a week all aspects of Modern Greek jewelry to more than 7.000 visitors. The presentation of the platform took place again in 2013 at Technopolis in Athens, at the World Trade Centre in Dubai, at the Poseidonion Grand Hotel in Spetses island, and in Brussels, at the European Council, proving that Greek jewelry has a dynamic history and strong identity.
Concept and Design: Mary Samoli, Artistic Designer.
Writing and editing of texts and exhibition's album: Iris Kritikou, Art Historian.
