Necklace | Mixed technique of combining various metals (silver, bronze and copper), gold 24K leaves set with natural aragonite, ruby, iron pyrite & green old glass
Jewelry created for the Panhellenic Jewelry Competition "Ariadne's Eternal Thread" 2021
"My Necklace is a Complex of the Myth of Ariadne.
AT the Central position resides Minotaur who is represented by Horns and Mane.
Minotaur symbolizes everything that blocks our path to freedom, development.
The Maze (labyrinth) follows, a difficult journey; it needs strength, intelligence. It is depicted as a circular <raw Aragonite> symbol of power, creativity.
Next to it, resides <Mitos> , a guiding force and light towards Freedom, Culture.
The "Ariadne's Mitos" symbolizes the sacred Divine part of our existence. The word "mitos" has common roots with Mitochondrion that contains DNA.
Thus, I completed the Necklace by creating a complex of <Mitochondrion> and <Mitos> that evolves into DNA, into HUMAN.. and why not, into the GREEK who with his ingenuity, Art, Culture helped us to find the way out of the Labyrinth and to reach Greece in 2021."
