About this project

A collection based on the simple schematic linear patterns relating to various types of Greek traditional costumes.
The lines are replaced by the enamelled chain which now forms the silhouette of the garment. The collapsible nature of the piece emphasizes its versatility and suggests its dual functionality. One can either hang it on the wall, creating a visual representation of the garment, or wear it on the body thus transforming it into a new entity as a piece of contemporary jewellery.
