ABOUT IOSIF IOSIFIDIS

Iosif Iosefidis

"Iosif Iosifidis was born in Alexandroupolis, in 1964. In 1988, he graduated from the National Academy of Art in Sofia, receiving his Master of Arts in Conservation and Restoration. During his internship, he attended precious metals workshops, in metalsmithing and jewellery techniques.

In 1986, he revealed his first sterling silver jewellery creation. Two years later, he set up his first workshop in his hometown and was one of the first designers. He developed enamel jewellery, encompassing a wide range of colours and styles, and created the most distinctive pieces. Through the years, he gained knowledge and experience in designing and crafting precious metals. His handmade collections carry his own unique style, as he designs jewellery that adorns the body and empowers the mind.

 

Every piece celebrates the wearer’s unique essence. Through his creations, he inspires his customers to relish what is unique and authentic about themselves. His artistry lies in drawing out the beauty that resides within, that’s why every jewel of his is a wearable piece of art.
