About

My fascination with gold and gemstones began in childhood. My mother kept a small box filled with colorful gemstones, and she would let me sift through them for hours. As a young girl, those precious, colorful jewels and my imagination took me to faraway lands and times, and feeling their cool surfaces I could almost see the jewels on beautiful women of the ancient cultures, the colors and shapes formed into beautiful jewelry gracing ears, arms, and fingers.

Today, as a goldsmith since 1992 , I draw on those childhood memories and inspirations from ancient jewelry, mainly in the Greek traditions, injecting my own sense of style while maintaining a connection to rustic designs of long ago.

My fascination with gold and gemstones began in childhood. My mother kept a small box filled with colorful gemstones, and she would let me sift through them for hours. As a young girl, those precious, colorful jewels and my imagination took me to faraway lands and times, and feeling their cool surfaces I could almost see the jewels on beautiful women of the ancient cultures, the colors and shapes formed into beautiful jewelry gracing ears, arms, and fingers.

Today, as a goldsmith since 1992 , I draw on those childhood memories and inspirations from ancient jewelry, mainly in the Greek traditions, injecting my own sense of style while maintaining a connection to rustic designs of long ago.

Each piece of jewelry in my shop is unique and completely handcrafted, using primarily 24k gold and sterling silver skillfully integrated with precious and semi-precious stones. I especially enjoy working with pure gold because of its softness and warm yellow color, which I feel sure also attracted the designers of ancient cultures that I emulate.
The raw sensuality of the materials that I choose connects my unique creations to those authentic ancient designers, and each piece I create inspires the next piece in turn. I very much enjoy this creative process and am grateful for the opportunity to share it with others.

My uniquely jewelry can be found in leading galleries as well as in my personal studio. I hope you enjoy browsing my shop here at Etsy, and that you find a special piece that inspires you as much as it did me.
