Woman – Life – Freedom necklace
When Iranian women started to protest I felt immediately involved. The mixed feelings that the scarce news that arrived provoked in me made me powerless and worried.
The images of those powerful and brave women that risk their life for their rights, the hair cut as a demonstration of “the death” of their life lead me to create this necklace. I was thinking of the cut hair flying in the wind as black feathers, the feathers of that blackbird that the Beatles sang as a metaphor of another story of persecution and human rights violation that involved black people at their time. Imagine to look at these shining silver face completely ruined on a side that sing “…You were only waiting for this moment to arise”.

After having earned a degree in Art History - Greek Goldsmith, the artist attended a Goldsmith School and at the same time a renowned silverware workshop in Rome. In 2002 she started her workshop. In recent years she has devoted herself exclusively to contemporary jewelry and was awarded during exhibitions and European jewelry weeks.
