Marina Skia  

Marina designs and creates bold and elegant fashion jewellery in silver.

Her greek heritage inspires her collections with forms and shapes encountered in nature. Her particular interpretation is graphic and characterised by bold geometry, and clean lines. For Marina abstraction is a key part of the design process. By removing the clutter she gradually develops forms and shapes that reference the initial inspiration but with a level of sophistication that cannot be achieved when too much detail is present. 

To produce the work Marina combines traditional hand making skills she was taught while training as jeweller in Greece with contemporary technologies such as 3-D printing, laser cutting or acid etching.
