Kick in the eye is independently run by Melbourne based creative, Antonia Pantazis. Originating from a multidisciplinary background in fine art, her skillset organically expanded closer to her main interests in fashion and style by learning how to create jewellery. Studying the basics of traditional teachings provided a basis to build upon self-taught methods of production in which the majority of products are born. An important element of Kick in the Eye is collaborating with like-minded creatives on projects, events and photoshoots to bring the jewellery to life.
Kick in the Eye respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land in which we live and create on, the Bunurong Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung peoples of the Eastern Kulin Nation. We pay respect to their Elders past, present and emerging.
