Wind battered olive trees in an ancient field. Caper bushes and wild pistachio trees clinging to endless walls of stacked stones. Green notes across a dry terrain. Heart-shaped leaves, floating petals, shifting clouds. In short, the compelling allure of the Cyclades. With shapes borrowed from the landscape, Julie Tzanni’s jewelry captures the spirit of the island in porcelain. Unique pieces that maintain a careful balance between contemporary minimalism and traditional refinement.
The “Leaf” collection of earrings are unique pieces formed from the genuine leaves of olive trees, pistachio trees, caper bushes, and other indigenous plants, carefully pressed into porcelain and set in silver or gold-plated silver findings.
The “Shifting Summer Cloud” collection is inspired by the seductive movement of those rare bright clouds of summer. Single, double, or triple translucent layers that catch the beauty of the sky and the rays of the sun.
The “Pebble” collection is as smooth and serene as the sea-worn stones strewn on along the shore.
You can find all these collections at Julie Tzanni’s workshop in Sifnos and at the Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens, which has featured Julie’s work since 2010.
