How did your brand begin?
As an architect I was designing wearable pieces all my life. In 2014 after i attended silversmithing seminars that taught me the "know how" and the different techniques, I decided to make my own brand with jewelry pieces that I would wear, and collections that would make women feel unique.
Values are really important to us at JewelStreet. What are your core brand values?
Authenticity, Caring, Trust, Respect and Freedom to design all those Timeless jewelry pieces are My Bling's values.
Where do you get inspiration for your designs?
Architecture, nature, fashion and ethnic trends inspire me the most, but I am always alert for new sources of inspiration.
How is your jewellery made?
All "My Blings" are made by hand in my workshop by me. I put my love and care into each piece using mostly silver and brass, with the best quality gold platings.
Are there any celebrities you would love to see wearing your designs?
I would love to see Beyonce wear one of my earrings on stage, and Jennifer Lawrence or Scarlett Johansson wearing a My Bling on the red carpet.
Can you recall a particular moment with a client that will stay with you forever?
An upcoming Greek singer bought a pair of my trademark "Ice Cream" earrings and wore it on TV Talent Show The Voice. She texted me to say that she doesn’t even wear much jewelry, but she is wearing this piece all the time now and it is her favorite.
If you could only wear one piece from your collection, what would it be and why?
I can definitely not pick one because I love wearing my jewelry and it depends on my mood every day, but I would never go out of the house without my earrings.
What music do you play in the studio whilst you’re working?
I usually go for Latin Jazz music when I work, but any dance or happy music would do. Even hip hop and RnB is a good companion.
