Greek designer Barbara Safaka is based in Athens, Greece, and graduated from Athens University of Economics and Business. She always had a strong desire of doing art with a vision to create fine and delicate jewelry, wearable from different ages. It is fascinating to her that jewelry is something you keep with you for eternity, it is something borrowed, it is never really yours, and it is something to pass on to the next generation. She is the creator of the brand Barbóra.
Barbóra is a handcrafted jewelry collection, drawing on inspiration from the Greek heritage, the mysterious energy of cosmogony theory, the nature, the sea and their imperfections. Using traditional craftmanship techniques and quality materials each piece is carefully crafted in Athens jewelry studio.
“The gold and silver texture is my way of telling stories, linking the ancient and amorphous with a modern perspective. There is always a feeling behind everything I do; many of the things I create are stories about the myths and their wisdom. Believing in the timelessness of art, I love the way jewelry is made to be passed on through generations and becomes a part of the woman and her story.”
