I am the person and artist behind Porpe Artifacts. Originally from Greece, I studied Jewelry Design & Making for 12 years before moving here, in the PNW. I started Porpe Artifacts to escape from my corporate life and pursue what I love most – and even though it has been a challenging journey I haven’t looked back.
My jewelry designs tend to be sculptural – due to my Greek culture-, combining unexpected materials with metal in a contemporary design. But equally important are the stories behind each collection. I really love creating inspiration notes hoping to create a live interaction between the piece and the person who will eventually wear it.
My favorite materials are Gold, Sterling Silver, and any humble material that I can put my hands on and transform them into a jewel, such as shells, pebbles, silk cocoons, horse hair, wood…
I am really, really excited to join Fogue Gallery and looking forward to the new space in West Seattle!
