Kallia Xa is a talented artist from Greece who specializes in embroidered fabric jewelry and colorizing and engraving metal techniques. I love the intricacy and delicacy of her work that turns traditional methods into contemporary styling, to great effect.
The necklace on the dress, below, is a nice example of the many perforated leaf necklaces that Kallia creates. In the following interview with her, I try to get at what inspires her and how she makes her pieces.
Also, Kallia's work will be showing at Gallery Flux in Ashland, Virginia in December.
