Nicholas Dilaverakis and Anna Skiadaresis started jewellery design in 1999.

NIKOS

I studied architecture at the University of Dundee and worked as an architect in London. When I came back to Greece for national service I decided to stay in the country.

From an early age I liked handling different materials and arranging them in an expressive and meaningful way.

I attended micro sculpting seminars, started sculpting sea pebbles and moved on to semi-precious stones such as quartz and aqua marin. It is a slow process that requires total concentration which I find inspiring and restful

ΑΝΝΑ

I was born and live in Athens

I have graduated from Vakalo school of applied arts. I have collaborated with architects, worked on furniture design, having always an artistic approach. Most of all, I have ”studied” art, growing up in an artistic environment, due to my parents. Art galleries and museums were a big part of my childhood and thereafter. I do believe that art, is an essensial way of expression in any culture.

Rephrasing a Sarandaris verse:

”Art is never absent,
if so, life would fade out
and so would wonders”

I am involved in jewellery since 1999. I seek harmony through form and I often use this process as a means to communicate ideas. Some of my jewellery draws from modernism , while others have supple forms, according to theme.
