i am going to greece in a few weeks for a true vacation. as the trip gets closer, my thoughts turn more and more to greek culture and history. the other day i realized i don't know much about contemporary greek studio jewelry and decided to do a little research. although i haven't found much, i did find the work of maria militsi who's work is so interesting to me that finding few results is ok. most of the work is in two parts, a found case and the work that fits perfectly inside. maria's work is a wonderful mix of the antique and the modern.
i also love maria's photography because we get to see the work in several different ways - at rest and enclosed in a case, suspended on its own, and engaged or worn by a model.
thanks for reading.
