Hi! I hope you enjoyed browsing my shop. I would like to start by thanking everyone who has added my shop and jewelry to their favorites. It is a great source of encouragement and very flattering to know that someone appreciates my work.

Now, a little about me, I was born and raised in the U.S. and have been living in Athens, Greece, at least part of the time, for the past ten years. I have always had an interest in the creative arts. Throughout my life I have enjoyed painting, drawing, and designing etc. While I ended up pursuing a BA in Psychology, I initially studied fashion design in college and after many years have found my way back to design through making jewelry.

Throughout my life I have enjoyed painting, drawing, and designing etc. While I ended up pursuing a BA in Psychology, I initially studied fashion design in college and after many years have found my way back to design through making jewelry. I have been designing and making jewelry for six years now. I have completed several certificate courses but I am mostly self- taught. My work is inspired mainly by nature, of which there is no shortage in New York’s Hudson Valley, where I grew up, or the Greek country side, where I often go to escape Athens' hectic pace. I also have a great appreciation for the art and jewelry of ancient civilizations. I am amazed by the works of art they were able to create using tools less refined than ours. These pieces are still influential and relevant to this day; a testament to the fact that handmade stands the test of time. Lastly, I am so glad to be on Esty, where I am able to showcase my work alongside so many other talented artists.
