Elisavet Messi is a Greek jeweller that handcrafts limited collections and bespoke pieces from her Kent based studio.
'In times of progressed technology, the design has been sacrificed over aesthetics and everything seems to come down to the importance of speed. By exploring a process known as 'Slow Design' I am creating jewellery and objects based on experimental knowledge and sustainable materials.'
With a minimalistic approach and belief in the purification of craft through good design; She tries to base her work on efficient essentialism; by embracing the truth of the materials used when possible. This approach results in minimal pieces with sculptural values.
Through out the process of making, all the materials are ethically sourced; such as 100% recycled/refined silver & fair trade gold.
