Vicky is the founder Porpe Artifacts. She learnt metalsmith techniques and art jewelry in Athens, Greece for 10 years. She also took free hand painting lessons for 4 years.
Expressing through art for her was an escape from her corporate job. Vicky originally studied Computer Science and after 25 years in the corporate world she decided to pursue what she loved most: art jewelry.
In Vicky’s words “When the creative process is initiated, expressing ourselves in unique ways, creating, observing and learning is important. We hope that through our creations you will appreciate the beauty of nature, enjoy our stories and feel unique when you wear them. We believe that women should pursue what they really love and in whatever phase we are in our lives we should always Jewel Ourselves!”
