aelios design, Winnipeg, MB: Jewellery
Katerina Pappas is mostly self-taught, and has been creating jewellery using traditional, but environmentally friendly methods for eight years. She learned while living abroad, having had the opportunity to work with seasoned metalsmiths. She prefers to use salt and vinegar to clean her pieces, beeswax to lubricate, and water-based finishing solutions rather than the chemical options available. Katerina uses only natural materials in her pieces and recycles materials as often as possible. Her work is luxurious, yet lightweight and comfortable for everyday wear.
