Σε εκείνους που σκέπτονται πως η Ελλάδα σήμερα δεν έχει καμία σημασία ας μου επιτραπεί να πω ότι δεν θα μπορούσαν να κάνουν μεγαλύτερο λάθος. Η σημερινή, όπως και η παλιά Ελλάδα, έχει υψίστη σημασία για οποιονδήποτε ψάχνει να βρει τον εαυτό του.

Interview with Maria Glezelli

An interview with Maria Glezelli, for the Greek News and Radio FL Can you tell us a bit about your childhood “backstory”? I grew up in Athens, Greece. When I was just 5 years old, I discovered my passion for art. I spent countless hours exploring various crafts,...

“I have always been fascinated by opposing forces and particularly by the challenging dialogue between fragility and strength. This duality is what I’m trying to encapsulate in my work; the delicate feminine nature into a durable personal adornment.” The brand Maria Glezelli was born out of my desire to design and make contemporary, lightweight pieces of jewellery that would combine wearability with visual beauty. Each piece is entirely crafted by hand out of sterling silver wire, without the use of any machinery, using a traditional Greek knitting technique that has been passed down in my family through the generations. A precious gold plating ensures robustness and durability, still keeping the delicacy of the shapes. My approach to my art through jewellery design pays homage to both ancient and modern narratives and Greek and Roman history and it is additionally fueled by the diverse experiences that I encounter in daily life. www.mariaglezelli.com
