Beautifully made. The bracelets took a little longer to ship than expected but Thessaloniki was communicative about everything. I'd definitely buy again.

Wonderful ceramic and brilliant customer service from Sophia and all. This was a special request to her as we had been let down by a shop in Santorini and she couldn't have been more helpful and understanding Sophia went through every detail with us. It arrived safely and on time as she had arranged with us and my daughter was so happy. So thank you again Sophia we will most certainly use this company again, can't fault it.

An eclectic array of Greek artwork and jewellery

ArktosArt is a collective shop, featuring the works, produced by my husband, Andreas and me and our collaborators, who are amazing, Greek artists in fine and applied arts.

Andreas and me design and make a line of jewellery, worry beads, decorative objects and charms, etc.
We also make our own pottery works, series of tableware and purely decorative ceramics, such as wall tiles.
Andreas is a mean wheel thrower, much admired by his peers for his wheel throwing skills.He was taught by the leading, Thessalonian potter, Dimitirs Argiroudis.
He trully loves meddling with clay and glazes, but also enjoys all his other craft making endeavours.His worry beads are really spectacular and he makes a lot of jewellry parts for me, as well.

Myself, I just make handmade ceramics, slabs of incised and coloured wall tiles with various themes of whatever strikes my fancy.Also handbuilt, ceramics pieces, sculptures and jewellery of various forms.
I love making unique, gem jewellery also and have stored a gorgeous selection of beloved, gem stones through the years.I collaborate with some friends, jewelry designers to create completely unique pieces.
I usually assemble gem stones with silver and gold plated, ready made, jewelry supplies pieces, for which I search our local market high and low.
I also make jewelry, with parts, created by our collaborators.
With my husband, Andreas, we also make small art objects of sculptures on sea pebbles and stones, like twigs of electroplated plants.Our olive twigs on white stones are very popular.
Another very favourite craft of ours is house charms and decorative wall pieces.We create tiny, as well as large house charms and decorative pieces with materials from our collaborators or from commercial supplies.
Together with our collaborators, we work on a variety of jewelry pieces and artwork, such as sculpture and ceramics for this shop.

ArktosArt also stocks an eclectic collection of Greek vintage items in jewellery and objects.
