I feel the need to share with all my watchers and friends a recent sad experience I had inside a group - the name is not important. Why is it so difficult to leave outside DeviantArt and other social sites and fora our worst selves? Does leading a group really means that much to some of us? 

A few days ago, a group admin asked my permission to include in a certain group's galleries one of my works. I felt flattered and thought: why not join this group? I submitted a few more of my works and half of them were rejected without any comments. When I asked why in a very polite comment I was treated like a juvenile delinquent! May I was right, may be I was wrong, its the attitude of the responder that's the real issue here. I deeply feel that no matter how important or insignificant one's work is, here in DeviantArt, everybody deserves a decent treatment. Polite questions deserve and demand polite responses. Condescending manners within authoritarian groups need to be addressed by consigning them to oblivion. Thank God there are so many groups out there. Why not give smaller groups a chance?

The aforementioned group states in its rules: "3 strikes and you're out..." and "I will personally remove you from the group. It's really no trouble" Wow, how sarcastic indeed! I already count one strike, why wait for the other 2 strikes to happen and not save the admin from the trouble of expelling me out from this group? Why not let myself out with my head up high just like the way I initially got in?  

An artist can still exist and create outside a group. He/she already did that for many years ago. Can a group exist without its artists?

Greece
I was born, reside and work in the beautiful and historical city of Thessaloniki, Greece. I had a crush for jewels since my early childhood. Since I couldn't buy them as a child, I started crafting them, first from legumes and pasta and then from colorful beads and faux gems.
I am vegetarian, I deeply love and care for animals and plants, and I adore antiques and vintage things in general.

I apprenticed to my grandfather, an esteemed jewelry craftsman. With abundant love and care he imparted his knowledge, skills and experience to me. My father was also there for me, supporting me both morally as well as technically, being an engineer, by providing me with many handmade tools specifically made for me.

Since 2004 I occupy myself exclusively with designing and crafting unique handmade jewels. For this purpose I use gold and silver in harmony with precious and semiprecious stones which I use in a rough or faceted form.
When I use them in their rough form, I get my inspiration from their texture, structure, shape and color and also from their spiritual properties. When I facet them or craft them in any other way, I get my inspiration from the rich Greek history and from motifs of the beautiful sunny Greek nature.

The jewels I make are unique, on the one hand each rough stone is different than the other, on the other hand each jewel is handcrafted individually, always with the utmost diligence, well made to the last detail. In the end the jewels are cleaned, polished and thoroughly checked for the last time prior to their careful packaging in order to reach you and your loved ones and add shine, color and beauty to your lives and relationships!
