About Daphne Krinos
Daphne Krinos was born in Greece and came to the UK to study jewellery design. She established her London Studio in 1984 and has taken part in over 100 exhibitions in the UK and abroad. Her work features in over 25 UK and International publications and is collected widely.
Daphne’s jewellery belongs to the public and private collections of the Goldsmiths’ Company, The Crafts Council and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
She has taught and lectured in several art colleges for many years and is a frequent exhibitor at Goldsmiths’ Fair and Collect.
Her pieces are stocked in several UK and international galleries.
Daphne has a spontaneous approach in the way she works. She hardly ever draws preferring to work directly with her chosen material, in most cases oxidised silver. Sometimes she makes models to help her visualise a finished piece.
Daphne also loves working in gold. It has a unique light absorbing quality, and works well with most colours. It is easy to recycle and work with and has a timeless look.
Her jewellery is made using traditional tools and techniques and is entirely hand made. She likes designing and making one off pieces, and occasionally limited edition collections of production work.
