Myrto creates expressive pieces of jewelry, designs that celebrate freedom and fluidity. Born and raised in Greece, she spent her childhood soaking up its light, its wild sea landscapes and the spirit of its people. This sense of light and freedom is impressed within the fabric of her designs. She originally trained in theatre design and later specialized in art therapy. Both her fields of study, imprinted strongly in her the idea of the image as an allegory of the hero’s secret world. An arbitrary class in wax carving in 2009 introduced her to the art of jewelry making.
Her approach to jewelry is very personal and artistic. As a dedicated designer- maker, she draws much inspiration from her raw materials. The carving wax for model making, gold, precious stones, they all beget a story that is yearning to unfold.
