I was born in the States, but raised in the beautiful island of Cyprus! Since I was five, I remember myself wandering around my family's jewelry store and workshop, usually annoying the craftsmen...for me it was play time! But as I grew up I got into it as well, and started having my own ideas, which luckily for me, I could watch them come alive through our craftsmen hands.

But I knew I found my passion, so I took the big scary step, left the precious jewellery business and started my own thing. I knew it was going to be difficult, and it is, but I didn't care. I love what I am doing!
Over the years I collaborated with fashion designers making their jewellery line for their line of clothes, been featured in fashion magazines, and making a different collection for each boutique I work with in Cyprus, Greece and now in the USA.

Inspiration : happiness, creativity, carefree people! Spending lots of hours in all kinds of supply stores, discovering materials that never thought I would use.

Satisfaction : when my customers keep coming back for more!
