Introducing to you my little treasures.

My name is Irene. I was born and raised in New York and am now living in Greece, on a beautiful island, Rhodos. I have studied Touristic professions but all my life I have been crafting, as long as i can remember.
I love getting involved with anything crafty like designing, drawing, decorating, molding, sewing, beadweaving, knitting, crochet and generally creating.
Recently I have studied graphic designing.

Introducing to you my little treasures.

My name is Irene. I was born and raised in New York and am now living in Greece, on a beautiful island, Rhodos. I have studied Touristic professions but all my life I have been crafting, as long as i can remember.

At the moment I would describe myself as a passionate self taught beadweaver and jewelry maker.

Being brought up from a dad that worked as a painter and a mom as a housewife I didnt really have everything I wanted so I would hand fix anything I couldn't have or find or anything my imagination put me up to. I used to build doll houses out of cardboard boxes! What life tought me is that what really counts is growing up with good values, love and harmony and those I had to the fullest.

In the year 2000 a head stroke which my dad miraculously survived confined him to the chair therefore ruining our plans of returning to the U.S. And so here I am a mom with 2 wonderful boys, a wife to a terrific husband and a devoted artisan with a great passion... handcrafting.

All of my jewelry is carefully handcrafted by me with much attention to quality as well as design.
My creations are made and stored in my pet and smoke free home.
My greatest inspiration for me is nature itself and art, simplicity and blending beautiful colors to create unique aesthetics.

I think it means alot to someone to receive a gift from you that has been so uniquely carefully and delicately handmade. And most of all something that will bring warm feelings to their hearts.
