Welcome to my workshop, the Earthmetal Studio.
Here I experiment with Copper, Bronze and Nickel silver to create my Jewellery.Highly attracted to Copper, the most primitive metal, I design and produce jewellery of high quality, often inspired by ancient art from all over the world.
The Studio is a very basic set up with no complicated or heavy machinery as I practice only Ancient Metalworking Techniques.
Every individual component is created entirely by hand from raw metal (wire, sheet or tube), with the use of basic hand tools and a lot of patience and care.
Although often very tempted, I use no solder as this would affect the character and the quality of my work.
Thank you for visiting,
Born in Athens in 1978 in an artistic household, Vassiliki embraced the arts from an early age. Although focused for years in her music studies (classic piano and Violoncello with which got her Diploma in 2003) in parallel she would explore various crafts such as drawing, painting, wood carving, stone sculpturing, sewing and knitting. In jewellery making she first practiced in Polymer clay, bead weaving, natural seed jewellery, and macrame to finally focus, few years after finishing her music studies, in wirework and metalsmithing. Today, she is creating her unique jewellery in the Earthmetal Studio and teaching holiday courses in Kefalonia from April to September while she still enjoys playing music with friends!
