Artemis Valsamaki

"Τo be able to express my concerns and thoughts in a piece
that will come in touch with the body , is very challenging to me,
defying sometimes the concept of jewelry, approaching the idea of an object.
My inspiration deals with human relations , dreams , Greek mythology, fantasy , hidden messages.
Each time my intention is to create a visual, narrative story to be worn."
