Hi,
My name is Kallia. I'm a visual artist and jewelry designer from Greece.
Part of my work is textile wearable art. I use common fabrics  I transform distressing them by heat to create the pattern. My fabric necklaces are moving together with the body, letting the air through. I often use distorting, dissolving and freestyle machine embroidering techniques.

When working with metal, I oxidize, colorize and engrave the materials and often combine them with fabric.

Most of the items I make are multifunctional.

This is my shop on Etsy:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/KalliaXa

My website:
http://www.kallia-xa.com
Drawings and models for jewelry projects:
http://www.kallia-xa.com/drawings/drawings-00.html

On Twitter @kalliaxa

I'm trying to create unique jewelry for confident, fashion aware, sophisticated women, unafraid to express their personal style.

My jewelry is also available at:
- Benaki Museum Shop, 138 Pireos Street, Athens - Greece
- "Efimerides" Gallery, 7 Dilou Street., Mykonos - Greece
- "Crateras" Gallery, N. Nomikou Street, Oia, Santorini - Greece

I checked your Etsy shop, WOW.  Great pieces.  I especially love the blue/grey cuff.  That is awesome.

Thanks again!
I just updated my site. Here is the address of the Jewelry section home page:
http://www.kallia-xa.com/jewelry/jewelry-00.html.
Pressing the "Galleries" link you can visit the new web catalogues I created for my jewelry.
Until the end of the of the month I'll upload the A/W 2012-13 collection, at least I hope so! Most of the items are ready, but I have still to photograph them, create the e-catalogues, update the site...  :(

Maybe I'll post a few lines about my site to "Gallery" or "Critiques" section of the Forum. I'm new on Handmade Artists site, so I'm just exploring it!  :)

Good to have you here, you will certainly enjoy it.  I do.  Sometimes I hesitate thinking, "oh they don't want to hear what I have to say" but no you know what, all comments are appreciated and I'm just a loud mouth anyway, so have to put my two cents worth in .  LOL

Hello Everyone,

My name is Katie Rose, and I enjoy designing and making handmade jewelry.  About 6 years ago I bought a beautiful pair of earrings with a cool wire design and realized that I had the ability to make it myself.  I started experimenting and came into a style of my own.

I started out just making a few pieces here and there for friends and family, and after years of encouragement have decided to share my designs with the rest of the world.

I really enjoy seeing others designs and often get inspired all over again!  I hope to get to know you all better :)

Thanks!
~Katie Rose
