Myths. And A Legend

Sophia Vari is a painter and sculptor whose miniature works of art double as fabulously architectural pieces of jewellery. A recently published book, Sophia Vari – Bijoux Sculptés, shows a selection of designs in close ups so tight they become abstracted. Not that that matters, it just means you get to pore over the detail with greater ease. Fashioned from ebony, gold, silver and blond wood, with the occasional rough gem providing vibrant pops of colour, the pieces – perhaps in homage to Vari’s Greek origins – are named after characters from Greek mythology: Aphrodite, Bacchus and Medea.
