Iris Tsante's colorful and unexpected pencil jewels are so fun. They embody ingenuity and playfulness.
"I consider jewelry as a process of exploring ways to define the senses of “beauty” and “value” in reference to memories of significant objects and the subsequent human/social connections related to them. It is a dialectic process since it involves the direct or non-direct communication between maker, wearer and viewer. My pieces provide connotations of optimism, lightness, simplicity, joy and innocence, revealing on the same time qualities such as fragility and vulnerability."
