Tassa Ganidou

Born and raised in Greece, Tassa Ganidou is trained in the design and manufacture of cast jewelry. For the past two years she has focused on “non-wearable jewelry,” using jewelry-making techniques and playing with scale to create standalone jewelry sculptures. Having spent summers close to nature from an early age, Ganidou felt the need to capture a part of it: images, sounds, wood, stones, fruit, fish and birds, and the sun started taking substance in the form of jewelry. She recalls the strength she felt when wearing her early creations, and the sense of fulfillment that came out of the process. Today, she continues to use those natural found materials of the past, combining them with silver, gold, and precious stones.
