The art of filigree in jewel making dates back to ancient times and 1000 B.C., where the Phoenician, the Etruscan and the Greek goldsmiths of the time hand crafted jewellery by creating and twisting together fine threads of precious metal.
Filigree Reborn. For the past few years Christina Soubli has become known for her unique filigree work. With her feminine creativity she has managed to interpret filigree in an utterly contemporary manner, maintaining the exact traditional process and technique from ancient times.
The first filigree collection of Christina Soubli was named Dentelles, as the shapes and patterns she created resembled a delicate lace cloth. The success of Dentelles as well as her passion for this delicate technique inspired her to further expand the filigree designs and play with geometrical shapes and gemstones, only to create a unique jewellery collection reviving this ancient art of jewel making.
Grapes is a collection inspired by Greek mythology, where grapes were precious and considered to be the ‘fruit of the Gods’. Clusters of colourful precious stones combined with 22 carat gold, make this collection lustful yet elegant to its core.
Helios is a contemporary interpretation of ancient Greek jewellery adornments. A collection comprising solely of earrings, all of them inspired by the circular shape and the rays of the sun. Made of 22 carat gold and combined with baby pearls, tiny citrines, sapphires or tourmalines, Helios is a collection with genuine Grecian flair.
Having studied in Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, Christina Soubli has been distinguished with significant awards, among which is also the Worshipful Company of Goldsmith’s Award of Jewellery. Her work has been exhibited in some of the most prestigious galleries and stores worldwide and has received numerous outstanding reviews.
