17 Feb 3rd Annual Jewelry Designer’s Meeting
Eleni Orfanou will join the 3rd Annual Jewelry Designer’s Meeting with the jewels of Youralma , as a member of the group A Jewel Made in Greece. The exhibition will take place in the largest indoor venue of Technopolis City of Athens (named Machine-works) and will run from February 25 to February 29, 2016.
A Jewel Made in Greece is a very creative artistic team project conceived and realized by the art designer Mary Samoli in 2013. Her flexible and elegant platform hosts Greek designers and creators of contemporary art jewelry that present their works of art in collective exhibitions. In the first exhibition of modern Greek jewelry, which was attended by more than 7.000 visitors in a week, a large number of Greek jewelry designers presented their work inspired of the Hellenic history and culture. The platform has also been presented at Technopolis in Athens, the World Trade Center in Dubai, the Poseidonion Grand Hotel in Spetses Island and the European Council in Brussels. This unique artistic journey proves the strong identity of Greek jewelry and the dynamic initiative of this team, ready to occupy an exceptional place in the world map of the art of jewelry making.
As part of the exhibition, a fashion show will take place on Saturday the 27th of February where the exquisite creations of the designer Andria Papadopoulou will be presented. The event will be followed by a cocktail party, whose proceeds will be donated to the Women’s Pan-Hellenic Sports Union “KALLIPATEIRA”.
Mary Samoli is hosting the exhibition and art historian Iris Kritikou is responsible for writing, editing and publishing the homonym album.
