The messages of ‘Colors of Rhodes’

I am preparing for my very first exhibition with a lot of excitement and love to present my handmade self-designed jewelry collection called ‘Colors of Rhodes’ on the 23rd March on Rhodes island. But I am not preparing alone. I can tell you that this is really a beautiful team work even from the very beginning. Let me share some messages with you that came to my mind during the preparation process for tomorrow’s event in ONO bar.

Human touch

So first of all I have to highlight that this is a 100% handmade project. Not only my jewelries! ONO bar didn’t just give me the space for this exhibition, but they provided me a tailor made display that we fixed together for this event especially for the jewelleries of Ilios art. I couldn’t imagine more precious presentation for my jewelries, which represents the value of ‘human touch’. We spent many hours of working on the best possible structure and design. And our ideas were multiplicated.


So this is one reason why you should come tomorrow – to see the final result! 🙂

As the jewelleries were inspired by the villages of Rhodes island I wanted to boost the experience with a local village taste from the island. Maybe you know that the small mountain village of Apollona has a fantastic women’s community the Apolloniatisses. They are supporting my exhibition with a bite of famous Rhodian sweet – their wonderful handmade melekouni.

Different colors

On Rhodes you can find so colorful houses all over the island in different villages. This is how my collection was inspired primarily. And also I was inspired by the different characters of the people who I met here. Living together by accepting each other’s culture, way of thinking, nationality, personality, character is a basic value for me. This island is colorful in many ways and tomorrow’s exhibition could be a good opportunity to gather different people, from different nationalities and with different personalities. A good opportunity to meet each other. Also this island helped me to discover my own ‘colors’, to express myself in different ways. Finding myself as a jewelry making artist one day is one of the discoveries that I made with the influence of the island.



The Greek word for ‘spring’ – άνοιξη – comes from the same root like the word ‘Open!’ – Άνοιξε. So it is time to celebrate spring, to open again after winter. To celebrate the upcoming new season of the island. And especially for me the opening of this exhibition means the beginning of something new. I just started a new life in this country and after a bit difficult beginning it is an honour to have the opportunity to welcome all of you on this event.

And ONO opened the door for me and for everybody. The place where you can find high quality drinks, but among all of them I would definetely recommend you the “brother” of ouzo: ‘Arak’, the famous anise liqueur from Israel, that you can find only here on the island!

//EN// I am a Hungarian woman living on the Greek Dodecanese archipelago where I have been researching the characteristics of the local landscape and culture since 2015. This journey and work on the Aegean sea gives me the fuel to share what I've found: through written materials (on this blog and at other venues), and to create artworks of pressed flowers and herbs which is a great botano-mythical journey, a worship in the great temple of Mother nature that widens my whole world each day a bit more. My interests: human integrity, interactions between a culture and an individual, recognizing and understanding nature's orderly movements and the cosmic patterns in the human (body and psyche) and their interconnectedness with the non-human world, mythology & archetypes, the Great Mother archetype, women's health, and healing through rebonding with nature (especially with the plant world). //HU// Főként a szavak és a képek nyelvén közlő, önálló utat kijárni próbáló, gondolkodó, örökösen válaszokat kereső embernek tartom magamat. Jelenleg Rodosz szigetén élek, ahol 2015 óta próbálom megfejteni a Mediterránum ezen szegletének (engem mágnesként fogva tartó) géniuszát a helyi természetben, szociokulturális vonásokban, egyéni történetekben - valamint próbálom megfejteni saját folytonosan formálódó viszonyulásomat e költészettől parázsló tájhoz, annak ambivalens jelenkori kultúrájához. Ez a kimeríthetetlen felfedező munka lett írásaim (és egyben önismeretem) epicentruma. A Rodoszi Herbárium pedig a görög szigetek természeti gazdagságának és éteri szépségének egyszerre megidézési- és megismerési kísérlete. A helyi növények gyűjtésével, préselésével és képekké alakításával nem csak a teremtés szépségében gyönyörködöm, hanem segít kapcsolódnom a fény útjához, a vegetáció diverzitásához és ritmusához, mitikus történetek, archaikus elfeledett bölcsességekhez, tudattalanomban szunnyadó képekhez, kozmikus analógiákhoz, és mindezen keresztül saját lényegemhez.
