Liana Pattihis

Statement
Stretching the boundaries of what can be achieved with enamel as a medium, I have developed my own unique method of sifting and fusing it on a movable base.
My work comprises mainly brooches and necklaces made out of silver and gold chain alone, or chain attached onto a copper mesh base which are then enamelled. Even though I have endless sources of inspiration, looking into Ancient Greek and Cypriot Jewellery had a tremendous influence on my work.
The appeal to me is that each piece is unique. My designs cannot be pre-conceived; each piece is allowed to create itself.
