KASTELLORIZIAN JEWELLERY

A DISPERSED ARCHIVE OF A PAST CULTURE

 

Have you inherited a piece of traditional Kastellorizian jewellery?

Have you been intrigued by the historical photographs of women and men with their jewellery?

 

Have you realized that jewellery was critical to the traditional Kastellorizian economy, and social life?

 

Why was jewellery so important to Kastellorizians, and what are the stories behind the various pieces?

KASTELLORIZIAN JEWELLERY

A DISPERSED ARCHIVE OF A PAST CULTURE
 

As a researcher and collector of the social history of Kastellorizo, Nick Bogiatzis has written an absorbing and informative account of the island's jewellery. 

 

Kastellorizians from around the world have shared photographs of their jewellery to beautifully illustrate the pages of this book. These images illuminate the stories behind the jewellery and take you on a rich journey into a past culture.

 

What inspired the work was the recognition that this heritage was being lost.  The stories were being forgotten.  The pieces scattered and overlooked.

 

This book for the first time brings such information together.  Its aim is to help preserve knowledge of the island's extraordinary social history.  It is a unique story.

 

Piecing together the information has taken years, drawing on individuals' memories and the few written resources available.  Importantly Kastellorizian Jewellery provides the cultural context for this jewellery.  It also includes useful glossaries of Kastellorizian words for their jewellery, and for coins used on the island, usually of gold.

 

This is fascinating reading for those with an interest in the island of Kastellorizo or in traditional jewellery.

 

The small but attractive illustrated hardback text is a very limited edition.
