Fey Papanikou leaders stamp

Fey Papanikou began to design her first jewelry collections in 2009. Architecture has significantly defined her aesthetics and design, giving clear, dynamic and geometric shapes and forms to her jewelry.

Transcript

Alongside with my studies in Architecture, and after attending jewelry manufacturing seminars, in 2008 i began this career.

I have always been fascinated by small scale and hand-made constructions, as well as seeing the final product I have designed to be implemented in real time.

I draw inspiration from architecture, art, everyday life, history and tradition.

My creations are characterized by geometric lines, simple and simple shapes.

The highlight of my journey is the moment I realized that I could make a living from it, so in 2015 I set up my own workshop and physical store in downtown Athens.

It is very nice to live and create in Greece, the problem begins when you decide to start a small business.

Nowadays, social media can help you to get your business going at an early stage.

Participating in exhibitions like A Jewel made in Greece can get you in touch with a more targeted audience, like the industry’s professionals.

It is a great honor and a pleasure to receive the Greek Culture promotion award, it rewards my work all this time.

A reward, always, gives you the strength to keep going, but it also creates the responsibility to live up to the expectations.

I am Fey Papanikou, jewelry designer and owner of the homonymous brand.
