My name is Teresa Degleri
I was born and grew up in Athens, Greece.
I studied Graphic Design and Interior Design and worked on both for twenty years. For the past eight years I have been making my own pieces of jewellery through which I found a means to express my need for artistic creativity.
Since 2012 I have been making crochet jewellery adorning it with various materials.
I have always been very good with needles and hooks. I mean knitting needles and crochet hooks. The crochet hook has become a natural extension of my hand creating pieces of jewellery based on a technique, not entirely traditional, nevertheless forming part of Greek modern life.
My creations are influenced by the richness of Greek nature, its plants and flowers, by the colors of the sea, the sky, the earth and fire.
As a young girl I was fascinated by fairytales as well as by Greek mythology and their interesting women who have inspired me and motivated me into giving their names to my necklaces.
I borrow these stories in order to make my own while making a crochet chain, by always using natural materials and a little sparkle!
