MYSTiS by Sofia Zarari
A journey in the Cosmos of Jewelry with the desire
to leave her imprint, to create her own symbolic alphabet.
Sofia Zarari studied Jewelry Design at the Mokume Silversmithing and Jewelry Design School, also in Athens, and subsequently wax modeling at the Accademia Delle Arti Orafe in Rome. She gained valuable experience during her career teaching jewelry design at the Plakas Art Center in Athens.
In 2018 she launched the label MYSTiS by SOFIA ZARARI, as a new window of communication with the public. The pieces of MYSTiS Jewelry travel across time and history, seeking to delve into the subconscious and narrate personal stories.
Her work creates microcosms of escape and seeks to delve into the subconscious. She occasionally uses performance art—movement and speech—as a means to approach cultures, revive primitive practices and decode symbols and understand their meanings. She systematically participates in solo and group exhibitions in galleries in Greece and abroad. The collaborations with the Benaki Museum, the Ilias Lalaounis Jewelry Museum, and the NEON Organisation (Athens) are three landmarks during her career.
