Workshop & Gallery

I embarked in a journey of plastic investigation since a little girl, while experimenting in my mother’s ceramic workshop. My desire to create smaller and more delicate objects soon revealed the limits of clay and my enthusiasm for micro sculpture. This triggered a challenging game between form and matter, devising sculptures that resembled jewels. Metals allowed me to reach the minimalistic delicacy I was looking for. Later they proved to be the perfect medium that helped me express my adoration for organic materials by acting as a base to transform them into wearable, abstract sculptures.

Absolutely abstract or extremely figurative my jewelry pieces are concluded when perfection in design is met through empiric sensitivity, trial and a sophisticated industrial process. Through a slow process of observation, devotion and respect I aim to convey my dedication to harmony and sustainability. This rhythm enables me to generate designs linked to my values and guarantees a slow fashion flow where I can consciously pick pebbles one by one, responsibly choose my suppliers and collaborate with local workshops with sensitivity.

I daintily observe my environment to absorb its refined qualities, either manifested in splendid beauty or hidden behind imperfections. Manmade and natural structures that I encounter while visiting distant cultures, tantalize me to decipher the principles of function and the process of making. My fashion background added to this natural tendency and reinforced my skills and perception of combining elements to create forms.

I use a variety of materials and try to work them into jewelry of a sensitive quality. Their movement and the way they stand alone or on the physical body are thoroughly studied, while assemblage is designed to accent form as pure as possible. Silver is used when appropriate in order to make pieces approachable but by applying elaborate goldsmith techniques they evolve into objects of advanced intricacy.

My ultimate desire is for my pieces to be intriguing and to hold the element of surprise, since, when they revel in the new I satisfy my hunger for inventiveness. But I need them to derive from a low-stress environment, where the high- touch is remarkable and the high- tech ethereal.

Coming from an artistic background Ariadni Kypri has been experimenting with techniques and materials since she was a young girl, making as core of her work a game between form and matter. Her jewelry collections tell an unexpected story using the silhouette as a narrative. Her work with materials is meticulous and delicate turning them into micro sculptures or fine objects that adorn the body in most unexpected ways.

She studied Clothing Design and Technology at T.E.I. of Thessaloniki (branch of Kilkis) and attended 2 postgraduate courses in Barcelona: “Fashion Accessories (bags, shoes, hats)” at Superior School of Design and Fashion Felicidad Duce and “Pattern-cutting for Scenic Arts and Spectacles” at Superior School of Image and Design IDEP. She has worked in the fashion industry before turning her career to become a jewelry designer.
