Christina Darras

Born 1968, Athens, Greece.

1986-1990 Ecole Nationale Superiere des Beaux-Arts, Paris

1990-1991 Central St. Martins College of Art & Design, London

A visual artist first and foremost Christina Darras has always flirted with fashion. In the past she has designed prints for Clements Ribeiro, teeshirt designs for Caramel baby and child and created a sellout range of beaded bags, each one unique – almost a mini painting that sold to the best stores worldwide (Harvey Nichols, Paul Smith, Collete etc). She has been making jewellery for the last fifteen years and claims she will continue "until she gets bored".  She hopes that her one off necklaces will make people smile" I make jewellery for girls who want to have a happy day".
