March Giveaway: win a pair of sterling silver open loop earrings

Hello and welcome to another Etsy Greek Street Team Giveaway!
It's time for March Giveaway, with a beautiful, modern and minimal open loop pair of earrings, made of sterling silver, by Margarita and her Etsy shop BlueMargaritaMetal.

Καλωσήρθατε σε άλλον ένα διαγωνισμό της ομάδας μας, Etsy Greek Street Team!
Είναι ώρα για το διαγωνισμό του Μαρτίου, με δώρο ένα πανέμορφο, μοντέρνο και μινιμάλ ζευγάρι ασημένια σκουλαρίκια ανοιχτούς κρίκους, από τη Μαργαρίτα και το μαγαζί της στο Etsy BlueMargaritaMetal.

March Giveaway Prize: a pair of sterling silver open loop earrings

Margarita lives in Athens (most of the time) and in Santorini island.
She studied pre-preliminary education, to become a kindergarten teacher. At the same time, she attended specialized courses (macrame, metalsmith, porcelain painting) and spent a lot of hours experimenting with different materials and techniques. She currently is under training to become a silversmith. 
So, she is a... creative teacher!

Η Μαργαρίτα ζει στην Αθήνα (το μεγαλύτερο διάστημα) και στη Σαντορίνη. 
Σπούδασε προσχολική εκπαίδευση. Ταυτόχρονα, παρακολούθησε εξειδικευμένα μαθήματα (μακραμέ, μεταλλοτεχνία, ζωγραφική σε πορσελάνη) και πέρασε πολλές ώρες πειραματιζόμενη με διαφορετικά υλικά και τεχνικές. Αυτή τη στιγμή εκπαιδεύεται στην αργυροχοΐα. 
Είναι, λοιπόν μια... δημιουργική δασκάλα!

Sterling silver lariat necklace with squares and circles

Living in Greece, and especially, during the summer, at Santorini island, she is lucky to get inspired by the greek culture and the aegean colors, shades and images...

Ζώντας στην Ελλάδα, και ιδιαίτερα τα καλοκαίρια στη Σαντορίνη, έχει την τύχη να εμπνεέεται από τον ελληνικό πολιτισμό και τα χρώματα, τα σχήματα και τις εικόνες του Αιγαίου...

Grecian cuff bracelet

Εach and every piece is designed and made by Margarita in her studio in Athens, Greece. She uses traditional silversmithing techniques and tools. She mostly works with sterling silver wire and sheet. 
She also loves mixing metals, so she often uses other metals in combination with silver, like brass or copper. 

Κάθε κομμάτι είναι σχεδιασμένο και φτιαγμένο στο χέρι από τη Μαργαρίτα, στο στούντιό της στην Αθήνα. Χρησιμοποιεί παραδοσιακά εργαλεία και παραδοσιακές τεχνικές μεταλλοτεχνίας. Δουλεύει κυρίως με σύρμα και φύλλα ατόφιου ασημιού.
Αγαπά επίσης να συνδυάζει μέταλλα, έτσι συχνά χρησιμοποιεί, σε συνδυασμό με το ασήμι, και άλλα μέταλλα, όπως τον χαλκό και τον μπρούτζο.

She  prefers simple, minimal designs. Sometimes, she starts working on a piece without having anything in her mind, just experimenting... Traditional handmade pieces are time consuming to make, but they are unique and one-of-a-kind. So, even if she makes twice the same design, they will not be 100% identical. 

Προτιμά τα απλά, μινιμάλ σχέδια. Πολλές φορές ξεκινά να δουλεύει ένα κομμάτι, χωρίς να έχει κάτι συγκεκριμένο στο μυαλό της, απλώς πειραματιζόμενη... Τα χειροποίητα κοσμήματα, μπορεί να χρειάζονται περισσότερο χρόνο για να κατασκευαστούν, όμως είναι εντελώς ξεχωριστά και μοναδικά. Έτσι, ακόμη και αν φτιάξει το ίδιο σχέδιο δεύτερη φορά, τα δύο αυτά κομμάτια δεν θα είναι ποτέ 100% πανομοιότυπα.
