Intro
This new series of work draws inspiration from architectural and exoskeleton structures.

Artist list

Zeta Tsermou
Inspired by architecture, this collection exposes the inner core of the jewellery piece free of its outer shell.   The revealed core is the heart of the piece.  The core can be rough, the core defines the shape, the core is where the essence of beauty is hidden.  The piece of jewellery then turns into an exoskeleton or an armour to “protect” the body that wears it.  Other times it can become almost weightless, wrapped or folded in order to create fluid forms.

About the Artist:
Zeta Tsermou was born in Athens, 1972.  She studied architecture in the National Technical University of Athens, then got a Masters degree (MArch) in the Bartlett School of Architecture of UCL in London.  She worked as an architect in London and Athensand also taught architectural design in Portsmouth School of Architecture.  Later she studied sculpture in the School of Fine Arts in Athens.

Micro sculpture soon led to experimentations with jewellery and sheattended various workshops and seminars in jewellery making: in Athens with Dimitris Nikolaidis and in London with Paul Wells and Anastasia Young in Central St. Martins.  Now she works as an artist and jewellery maker in her studio in Athens.
