The exhibition “A Jewel Made in Greece” held in February 2014 at Technopolis, brought together for about a week most of the greatest modern Greek jewelry artists. The idea and the implementation belongs to the visual designer Mary Samoli. The exhibition has been curated by the distinguished art historian Iris Kritikou.
In the industrial cultural venue of Technopolis Gazi in Athens, 26 contemporary jewelers, along with seven Greek museums and six famous goldsmiths who pioneered the export of Greek jewelry worldwide united their powers to showcase today's art jewelry, its roots in Greek culture and promote its image overseas.
The exhibition attracted more than 3000 visitors, who all admired and got inspired by the young and more experienced art jewelers who presented their collections with passion proving that creativity and art cannot be defeated by the economic crisis.
