“Kostis Bacharidis was born in Thessaloniki, where he currently lives and works as a handmade jewellery designer and manufacturer. He graduated in 2006 from the Department of History, Archaeology and Social Anthropology of the University of Thessaly, but his love for arts, need for self expression and desire for creativity led him to gold and silversmithing. Specifically, he obtained a diploma in silversmithing after completing his art studies at Institute of Vocational Training named "Mokume" in Thessaloniki. Today in his workshop he transforms various metals into modern jewellery, giving each one a unique identity. He uses mainly silver and gold, while in his work stands out the "traces from the past" collection with fossils from various regions of Greece.”
