Maria Frantzi

Maria Frantzi was born on the Greek island of Rhodes to parents who were jewellers. She is inspired and fascinated by the history of jewellery which is reflected in her work. Maria is particularly inspired by ancient cave-dwelling ancestors “People may say that jewellery is a frippery, but jewellery was possibly the first thing created by human beings that was not required for simple survival. Through the ages, jewellery has been used to express prestige, power, faith and love”
