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!
