“As one of my major objectives I see the embodiment of the ancient principles of simplicity and elegance, filling the old techniques with modern vibration.
Engraved texts on the gems create a unique semantic fullness of each item so that any jewellery holder can feel like a guardian of a secret message, a participant in the interchange of epochs, to find one’s own reference point, support and acknowledgment”.
Picture: Anna Fanigina Verba, “θάλαττα, θάλαττα”/ “sea, sea”.
Ancient Greek inscription on stone.
“Sea, sea!” cried out the Greeks with joy as they saw the seashore. Their adventure would end soon.
In modern Greek, we use the words θάλαττα, θάλαττα to connote that there is light at the end of the tunnel! An outmost optimistic message!
