After studying Interior Design, Fabric Design and concerns about the original idea, always interested in fashion and color combinations, creator Elena Konstantinopoulou began designing jewellery for her friends. This occupation evolved and became a constant need for creation and expression. So, 2013 the birth of “2design jewellery” followed. Recently, Konstantinos Athanasiou was added to the creative team of “2design jewellery”.
My occupation with interior architecture and fabric design, and with the constant need for creativity, pushed me to begin compose jewelry as a hobby for my friends.
This is how 2design Jewellery was born in 2013.
Recently I was added to the creative team of 2design Jewellery and as a mechanical engineer we were able to give a new direction and combine art with technique.
Our source of inspiration is architecture, the forms of nature, various geometric shapes.
And so we managed to achieve a balance between strictness and creativity.
The materials of our jewelery reminiscent the Greek minimalism and the strictness of geometric elements.
People’s response is very positive, it is of all ages and this is a great surprise.
Our participation in A Jewel Made in Greece in Zappeion where we came in second among many jewelry makers is a milestone moment for 2design Jewellery.
It is a challenge for us to create in Greece today, but even in a difficult economic environment, we continue to create, dream and work hard.
Our goal is to make 2design Jewellery a recognizable brand name based on originality of products and materials.
My name is Elena Konstantinopoulou and I am the cofounder and art director of 2design Jewellery.
I am Konstantinos Athanasiou, creative director and sales manager at 2design Jewellery.
