Eikosi Dyo – Melanie Nydegger


A fashion stylist for the last ten years and always passionate about jewellery, Melanie Nydegger has a curious and instinctive temperament, constantly looking to discover what makes her tick. In love with freedom, she left her native Switzerland and settled in Paris, where she studied dramatic arts. After performing in front of the camera and on stage, she turned towards fashion looking once more for a new experience. As a self-taught quick learner, she immersed herself in the techniques of jewellery making, and with unbridled enthusiasm learned everything she needed to know from a jeweller and mentor who took her under his wing. She finds the grace of her inspiration in Greece, reinterpreting the design codes of good luck charms; she has created a breezy collection of jewellery marked by simplicity with a fierce desire to share the aura of Greece. She enthusiastically embarked on this adventure, which she now calls eikosi dyo, meaning “twenty two” in Greek, “the day of everything changed” for her!
