About Superlora

Designed by
Ariadne Kapelioti
with a scientific approach, Superlora jewellery is
a classic twist
to a contemporary design.

Born in 1984, Ariadne Kapelioti grew up in Thessaloniki, Greece, where she received a BSc in Physics from Aristotle University. After learning the complex art of silversmithing next to a professional in Thessaloniki, she completed jewellery design and fashion contextual studies in London, at London College of Fashion, Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and Condé Nast College of Fashion and Design.

 

Upon the end of her studies, she founded “Superlora”, the first Greek jewellery brand embracing 3D printing technology. Since 2012, Superlora jewellery projects have been placed at gallery shops and concept stores around Greece, while appearing in a variety of print and digital media.

 

Superlora has participated in art exhibitions and fairs showcasing contemporary design. Ariadne was honoured to be selected among the 75 designers of "Open Design Italia" 2015 through an international competition and received the prestigious "A Design Award" 2017 in Jewelry, Eyewear and Watch Design Category. Last February, Superlora participated at the 6th annual designers’ meeting, “A Jewel Made In Greece” at Zappeion Megaron, as well as the project dedicated to the international scouting of talents of contemporary jewellery “Artistar Jewels 2019” in Milano, Italy.

 

Overall, Ariadne considers herself as a scientist-gone-artist or a designer with a scientific approach. Science and Art & Design may appear to be two conflicting subjects, however, they have fundamental similarities; both disciplines require creativity, patience, research, inspiration and hard work. “Science has always ruled my mind and Design makes my heartbeat high!”, she says.

 

Superlora designs are highly influenced by the first costume jewellery era, the Fabulous Fifties, and feature forms and patterns inspired by Science in small series production. With attention to detail, precision and experimentation, completed using advanced 3D printing technology, Superlora jewellery is large and light, shiny and colourful, playful and quirky.

 

Moreover, Ariadne creates in a conscious way; not only is she following a no leather, no fur policy and strict waste management codes at the studio, but she is also designing jewellery that doesn't follow the trends, only attempts to fit the zeitgeist of the era.
