Transcript

The reason I started to design was that my male friends didn’t have many choices in what jewelry to wear so the first jewelry I made were for men, but eventually they were worn by women too.

I find inspiration in all the facets of my life.

In recent years I have begun to be more influenced by Greek tradition and culture.

Honor are aimed at people who like experimentation and innovation.

One of the highlights was when my creations were selected from the British Jewelry Academy among the most beautiful jewelry at the Vicenzaoro exhibition.

I feel lucky to live and create in Greece. For me, Greece is an endless source of inspiration, joy and beauty.

It is very important to be surrounded by people with knowledge and experience who you can trust.

At Honor we are a big family with common goals and vision.

The promotion of our work from the first moment was based on social media. We currently have one of the most popular pages in Greece on Facebook and Instagram. Concerning exhibitions, we participate in almost all professional exhibitions in Greece and at A Jewel Made in Greece.

I’m Manos Chaniotis founder and creative director of Honor Omano.
