About

I love sparkle. Things that shimmer and shine have always attracted me. As a child, I applied glitter to everything I could get my hands on and always left a trail of glitter behind me. My love of sparkle only intensified when I started to wear and admire jewelry.
My exposure to Greek artisan jewelers from a very young age and my Greek heritage have influenced my love of 18k and 24k gold and my choice to work with gold vermeil.(24k gold layered over sterling silver)
I chose the name Elektra for my shop because it means bright and shining. I make one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces to accommodate many different styles and fashion trends. I create all the jewelry myself in my studio at home.

Although the choices of material to use in jewelry design are endless, I have chosen to use top quality gemstones and findings in my work. My pieces are meant to be worn and enjoyed for years to come.
I love to work with gold vermeil, Bali sterling silver, semi-precious stones and vintage glass beads. Lamp work beads and Venetian Murano glass have become some of my favorite materials. There is nothing comparable to genuine Murano glass. The colors of these beautiful Venetian beads are so exceptional; they add another dimension to my jewelry. I use top quality findings and stones to create unique pieces which I do not duplicate. Each piece is yours alone. Please check back frequently for new designs or contact me for a custom piece. My jewelry will arrive in a lovely box with my logo embossed on the top.
