Intro
Maria Tsimpiskaki is a contemporary jeweller living and practicing in Athens, Greece. Tsimpiskaki has been working in jewellery design since 1990 after attending classes in several artistic areas, such as painting, sculpture and design. The artist also holds a degree by the Athens University of Economics and Business. An articulation between line, color and material as well as wearability are the main concerns in the jeweller creative process.

Statement

I think of jewelry design as a combination of line and color and material that is each time the result of a given frame of mind, of different mental and emotional states.
It is the lines and forms and shapes that we encounter all around us in the natural world, in the street, or in everyday life, or even in the images these trigger in the mind… 

The colors that are inherent to the materials, almost invariably requiring special processing before they are revealed… 

And finally the materials themselves, whether luxurious, or humble, complementary, or disparate, or ephemeral, worked by hand using traditional and modern techniques to produce a range of unique pieces. 

My aim is to create jewelry that is flawless in terms of construction and finish, perfectly fitting the human anatomy so that it becomes an essential and cherished accessory, setting off the personality of the wearer.
