stella1-800x600Stella Deligianni was born in Thessaloniki. She studied economics at the University of Thessaloniki, but soon her creative aspirations drew into the world of jewellery. In 1984, the duo “Pleiades” was formed and, at the same time, a place under the same name was created at the centre of Thessaloniki, where she began experimenting with the materials and techniques used in the”art of jewellery”. Constant research and a personal approach on new materials and techniques led very quickly to the creation of a distinct personal style, loved by many for its originality and sophistication.

In 1989, she attended the Mocume school of jewellery. From 1990 to 1995, she taught in a private school of jewellery. In 2000, after the duo”Pleiades” closed its circle, she set off on a new personal journey. Always faithful to handmade jewellery, she never stopped developing her own techniques and forms.

In 2004, she became one of the founding members of “J.A.W.” (Jewellery Art Workers), a group of Greek jewellery designers. In the summer of 2009, she attended the training workshop”Surface in Depth” at the LE ARTI ORAFE Jewellery school, in Lucca, Tuscany with Stefano Marketti. In 2009, she started a collaboration with the Benaki Museum.
