Polina Sapouna Ellis Greek Inspired Convertible jewelry

I was invited last week by amazing jewelry designer Polina Sapouna Ellis to the presentation of her new jewelry collection at Salon de Bricolage, a private club in Athens. If you follow instagram@trendsurvivor you have already seen some of her exquisite minimal designs.

Polina Sapouna Ellis is is an archaeologist by training, with a Doctorate in Classical Archaeology from the University of Heidelberg in Germany. She excavated on the islands of Crete and Evoia for many years with renowned Greek archaeologists Yanni & Effie Sakellaraki. She also studied History of Art, and is an accomplished painter. Her life among invaluable treasures of ancient art, as well as her own need to create, led her to painting and ultimately to her true passion: jewellery design.

Her creations are as impressive as her studies. I saw the ancient Greek influence in her work and particularly loved the symmetry, the simplicity and how she reinterpreted the classical shapes.

Polina wants her  jewellery to be dynamic and often transformable, convertible to accommodate one’s mood. You can see more of her work polinasapounaellis

Even though I would happily wear almost everything from her collection and if money was no object I would definitely buy all the fish rings with diamonds and the oversized gold bracelet, I fell in love with a minimal rose gold necklace. I could wear it everyday and never get bored. Stay tuned I will show you…
