I have the pleasure to present a pitch on “The Emotional Value of Jewellery” during the International Symposium JEWELLERY MATTERS in Rijks Museum Amsterdam on 16 November 2017 (today at 15.45). The symposium pays tribute to the same name book by jewellery collector and scholar Marjan Unger of Amsterdam.
I would never have been able to write my Pecha Kucha without the helpful advice and information neighbors and friends from Leonidio, my home town in Arcadia, kindly shared with me. THANK YOU, guys for the highly emotional and inspirational material you gave me! Your trust honors me!
The title of my speech is:
“Offering jewellery to the ones who can not wear it: Burying the dead with jewellery, adorning icons with jewellery in contemporary Greece.”
A tooth with a golden crown taken from a relative’s scull after exhumation; it is used an an amulet.
Notice that the 33-knots-bracelet in the picture has to be worn till the wish is granted.

One thought on “JEWELLERY MATTERS!

  1. You really make it appear so easy with your presentation however I to find this topic to be really something which I believe I would by no means understand. It kind of feels too complex and extremely wide for me. I’m having a look forward on your next submit, I’ll try to get the grasp of it!
