Christina Brampti Contemporary Jewelry is a peerless brand originated in Athens, Greece in 2004. Since its inception,
the brand has evolved to represent the dynamic perspectives of today’s edgy and fierce style. Inspired by applied arts
and science curiosity and breaking with tradition, Christina Brampti herself offers a new point of view on contemporary jewelry.
With a thoughtful balance of tension and volume, Christina Brampti re-contextualizes jewelry into original arrangements, geometric shapes while she reimagines them with modern silhouettes. All the pieces deliver the experience of art through simple and valuable objects as they are remaining innovative, unexpected, and definitely one-of-a-kind.

Hailing from a background in Graphic Arts and then Décor at the VAKALO Art & Design College, Greece’s first school of applied arts, she assisted her first jewelry-making lessons from the sculptor Janine Baet.In 2000 she began to design her own hand-made jewelry and in 2002 joined the design team of a well-known company in the sector.

INSPIRATION IS ALL AROUND US
I believe that there are many ways to view reality, not just the way in which we have become accustomed to viewing it. It is those other “realities that” I try to discover in my work, using materials one would not normally anticipate and objects not directly associated with jewelry, by transforming them into something utterly unexpected.
I like building up a personal relationship with the materials I use, as I am trying to understand them, to listen to their special “needs” and identify their special properties, to explore their different potentials and boundaries. Once I have truly gotten to know them, I start playing around with them: transforming them by adding intensity, movement, femininity, color and light.
The way I see it, jewelry is above all a form of personal expression. A way of expressing yourself in the present; an opportunity to communicate. That is why most of my designs can be worn in several different ways, opening a sort of communication with the woman who chooses the pieces. I like to leave room for play, to leave space for imagination, so that everybody can transform the pieces I have already designed into something else.
