Loukia RICHARDS Textile Jewelry from Greece

Loukia Richards, Greek designer, is inspired by the  shapes, colors & motifs of traditionnal Greek embroidery.

« My jewellery is a game of inventing something precious in form and meaning from an unexpected material. I work with textile a material of sacred character in my hellenic heritage — the sacred character is evident both in the uses of the material in the ancient world as well as in the religious ceremonies of the present.
I am inspired by the shapes, colors and motifs of embroidery tradition of Greece, my mother’s country of origin. My recent work is inspired by the neolithic figurines and the cuneiforms of the cycladic civilization: white, simple, very basic.«
