MOKUME school, participates in ATHENS JEWELLERY WEEK 2016, with a series of installations taking place inside its workshops. The purpose of the intallations is to shed light to the story behind each piece/adornment presented: the concept that gave birth to it and the process of its production.
The vital lab space, where the jewelry designer/maker captures the initial idea and proceeds to its implementation, becomes the backdrop of the exhibition. Photographs, video art, and work by selected school graduates frame the event  and broaden our perception of what is jewelry.
MOKUME STUDIO” was founded in Thessaloniki in: 1987 – 88 with one goal: The Vocational Training of the students in Silversmithing and Jewellery Design.
In 1992 – 93, MOKUME opens a new branch in Athens, after an innovative and successful course. The same year Mokume becomes a member of F.E.D.E., (Federation Europeene Des Ecoles), the European branch of Education of U.N.E.S.C.O. In 1994, the shareholders and the management of Mokume schools, submit an application, for the recognition of the programme of studies in the Greek Ministry of Education, which was approved. Since then, both schools are the unique “Private Vocational Training Institudes” in Silversmithing ( in the sectors of: Handmade Jewellery, Casting Jewellery and Jewellery Design ) recognised by the Ministry of Education.
Nowadays, Mokume school’s goal is to encourage their students to approach an artistic view in jewellery, apart from the manufacturing one.

Music sets the rhythm and vinyl becomes the material; or the other way round. Music becomes the material and vinyl sets the rhythm for 17 improvisations on contemporary jewelry; tango-like brooches, rock-inspired necklaces, electro-bracelets. Tap your foot to the beat, prick up your ears and take a look on what’s happening when sound becomes the reason and starting point of inspiration. Seventeen creators and 17 music tracks “playing loud” in an exhibition that won’t leave anyone at peace: Pump Up The Volume.

Chalkis jewelry school

#Chalkis Jewellery School - Eric Robbert :“Chalkis-memory imprints”
Yiali / 5-6 Makrigianni str, Acropolis
OPENING: SATURDAY, 02/7, 20.00
Dates: 30/6-3/7,
opening hours: Thur-Sat. 10.00-13.00 & 17.00-20.00, Sun. 10.00-14.00
Chalkis Art school was founded in 1978 by mayor Ioannis Spanos and painters Chariklia and Dimitris Mytaras. It was one of the first art schools to be established in Greece and instigated the creation and foundation of other such schools in other municipalities of Greece.
Adding to the established annual student exhibition, the art school takes part in important exhibitions in many cities of Greece, as well as abroad.
The “Eric Roberts Jewellery School” of “Chalkis Art School”, came to be in 2000 after having received the following precious donation. The largest part of the workshop equipment is a result of the contribution of the wife of renowned jewellery designer Eric Robbert who loved Chalkida and the work of the art school; preserving and expanding cultural heritage.
The aim of “Eric Roberts Jewellery School” is to establish a creative contemporary jewellery hub in Chalkida, where imagination, artistic techniques and pursuits of people wanting to take a creative direction in their lives, are given prominence to.
“Eric Roberts Jewellery School” exhibits its work every two years in Chalkida as well as in galleries in Athens.

(The sense of absence and the presence of memory. An exhibition on jewellery, without jewellery.)
The “Eric Roberts Jewellery School” of the “Chalkis Art School” is participating in the 2016 Athens Jewellery Week with a non-classical approach. The focus is on the procedure, on the presentation of the journey from the idea, memories and emotions to the elements of display and the final composition.
We are interested in the world that lies behind the implementation of forms, the environment in which the idea develops, how this idea is shaped through the study of materials which are transformed, thus reaching the completion of the form; the final piece of jewellery.
This project derived from the city of today’s Chalkis and the fact that it is slowly losing the traces of its past. The past is still present in the memories of the people, but at the same time there is pain at the indifference to the loss of collective memory and values. Questions and thoughts are imprinted in matter, models, texts on the subject and photos. These elements give the opportunity to start up a conversation and exchange opinions, aiming at public awareness on the issues of history, memory, culture and identity.

« The main topic of the event is the Mediterranean as the “sea between lands, border and connection sea between these lands”.
The Mediterranean is the line where north-west and south-east of the world meet and a crucial area for the future of humankind.
This point of contact may become, as the writer Samuel Huntington says, “the starting point for dialogue between civilisations”, where common features are mixed with differences and the respect for “diversity” is based on understanding and knowing other people’s nature.
Each community should learn from the others and teach to them: it is possible to break the “game” aiming at creating monolithic cultures only through these connections.
This was probably not understood in the past, but now a defined direction should be outlined and followed to achieve this objective.
Therefore, the “voice” of the Mediterranean is not coming from the past, but from the future, according to that balance between land and sea, belonging and freedom, where a living model does not demonize our need for establishing links or our need for freedom.
If it is true that hope is in the future, then assigning this message to an extremely contemporary and innovative art expression can help us achieving this objective.
This is the reason why Contemporary Jewellery was selected, as this is a sector of advanced research and experimentation halfway between design and tradition, as an expressive language to disseminate this message.

Through Contemporary Jewellery research, it is possible to highlight and give value to the cultural diversities characterising all communities living around the shores of this Sea.
This project has several purposes: promote the cultural heritage that has always characterised the Municipality of Nocciano, i.e. its Medieval Castle and Picture Gallery beyond the regional and national borders.
At the same time, this event includes the possibility to create a tourist-cultural movement between the Mediterranean Village and Nocciano, which are a few km far from each other.  »

’17th Century Embroidery Interpretation ‘ cuffs, silk, cotton, pearls -  Embroidery sewing
Triple knecklace  – silk cotton semi precious stones gold and silver elements and plastic

« My work is inspired by old-fashioned activities such as sewing and embroidering. I admire how children transform ordinary materials into valuable assets and try to pay tribute to their game. I use natural materials – silk, wool, cotton, semiprecious stones. I produce small quantities because I work on my own. Every piece is unique and tells a story: of a couple meeting, a flower garland, and happy home. I search for vintage materials – buttons, textiles, stones. I want my jewellery to be funny but also detail orientated. I often use old garments, buttons and stones just to show that every material can carry a memory and still have a second life. » (Loukia Richards) (on CraftsCouncil page)

Projet Européen «Quand la pierre brute devient bijou !» 2009

Cet article pour exprimer toute mon admiration -et mon encouragement!- à ces jeunes et à leurs créations qui sont « notre futur » ! :-)

EXPO - Bijoux Européens - afficheEXPO - bijoux europeen affiche 3EXPO - bijoux europeen affiche 4 - bijoux de marbre

Le projet « Quand la pierre brute devient bijou ! » est soutenu par l’Union Européenne, à travers le programme Comenius. 8 écoles de bijouterie en Europe sont partenaires de ce projet pour engager leurs lycéens à un travail européen de prospection de minéraux ou matériaux bruts, de création de bijoux à partir de ces éléments, de rédaction de chroniques dans le journal lycéen Le Mur et sur les sites web. Une exposition collective itinérante présente chaque année les recherches et les créations de ce projet.

L’exposition est itinérante à travers l’Europe, et la première présentation a lieu au musée de la Cité de l’Or de Saint-Amand Montrond. Les pièces seront ensuite exposées en Belgique (Namur et Anvers, Février 2009), au Portugal (Porto, mars 2009), en Slovaquie (Kremnica, avril 2009), en Lettonie (Liepaja, mai 2009) et en Grèce (Thessalonique, juin 2009).

Pour la création de ces bijoux, les lycéens de chaque école ont prospecté des matériaux bruts dans leur propre pays : 
Les lycéens français ont travaillé sur des silex prospectés lors d’une expédition minéralogique en canoë sur des îles au bord de la Loire.
Les lycéens belges d’Anvers ont travaillé sur des diamants bruts, et ceux de Namur sont allés dans une mine de marbre noir à Mazy en Wallonie.
Les lycéens du Portugal ont travaillé sur l’ardoise prospectée dans la Serra de Valongo,
ceux d’Italie dans les carrières d’ardoise de Gênes.
Les lycéens de Lettonie ont ramassé des morceaux d’ambre sur les plages de la mer baltique,
ceux de Slovaquie ont travaillé sur des quartz recherchés dans leur région de Kremnica.
Les lycéens grecs de Thessalonique ont prospecté des morceaux de marbre blanc sur les sites de Kavala et Thassos.
