About

A Sense of Beauty

In spring 2004, I gave up teaching and academia to become a goldsmith. My love and fascination with jewelry needed to be translated into something concrete and tangible. So I took classes, I apprenticed, I worked hard and in December 2010, my brand "Kosmimata" was born in the basement garage of our house in Athens, Greece.

A year later to the day, our family moved to Seattle, Washington. My Etsy shop opened officially in September, 2012. "Kosmimata" is now in a new studio and I have never been happier.

Kosmimata are unique, hand fabricated pieces, designed by me (after a lot of research and study) and made by me in my studio without the help of any assistants. Once a unique piece is sold, I may hand fabricate the same design but always with slight differences that make it new and one of a kind; no two Kosmimata pieces are ever the same. Even earrings belonging to a pair are one offs.

Kosmimata pieces bear the traces of my hands and of the tools that made them. Each jewel records my journey toward the making an heirloom piece that will communicate to its new keeper a sense of beauty that lasts through time.

Welcome and thank you for visiting Kosmimata on Etsy!

All the pieces in my shop are designed and hand fabricated by me in my Seattle studio. I work in 22k gold, 18k gold, 14k gold, fine and sterling silver. The quality gemstones and pearls used in the Kosmimata designs are purchased from sources that I implicitly trust. Kosmimata's knotted necklaces are hand-strung using the best quality silk. All clasps and ear wires are hand fabricated unless stated otherwise in the description of the item.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have before you make a purchase.

MAKER' S MARK
Kosmimata's pieces are marked with my minute ΣΣ maker's stamp and the more visible Kosmimata K to guarantee authenticity and quality.

COLOR DISPARITY BETWEEN PHOTOS AND ACTUAL PIECES
Colors on various computer monitors vary greatly. How the colors in the images of the pieces appear on my computer screen may be quite different from how they will appear on yours. Lighting also contributes significant differences in color, especially when taking photos pieces with gemstones or enamel. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any concerns or questions.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
As all of my pieces are one of a kind, I do not accept returns or issue refunds. All sales are final.

*****In the rare case of a piece arriving damaged - for example, broken findings/chain, broken gemstone, broken ear hook - please contact me within the first 24 hours of receiving it. You are asked to please photograph the damaged item and to forward the picture to me. After I receive the photo of the damaged item, I will exchange the piece for another one.

Please remember that my pieces are unique and no two items of the same design are ever identical. They are all hand finished and especially the silver pieces are covered by a dark patina - thus, small imperfections on surfaces, marks of tools, oxidation and gradations in the color are not indications of flaws.

Rings are custom made to fit your finger, so please make sure you know the right size. If you need help with sizing, I am happy to assist you.

All the pieces listed are accompanied by detailed, high quality photographs that show the pieces in great detail. Additionally, in the descriptions of the pieces measurements, weight and fabricating techniques are recorded so that you can make an informed choice as to the piece that is ideal for you.

However, the best thing BEFORE YOU MAKE A PURCHASE is to message me with your questions and concerns.

Additional policies and FAQs
~ CARING FOR YOUR KOSMIMATA JEWELRY ~
When not worn, please store your Kosmimata pieces (especially the silver ones) in a jewelry box or cloth bag away from humidity and air. Jewelry cleaners should not be used at all on your Kosmimata pieces. I am not responsible for the results commercial jewelry cleaners might have on gold, silver and stones. A soft cloth will restore the shine to the polished, patina silver pieces and a combination of baking soda and water on a soft brush will clean the gold ones.

All cosmetic products and perfume should be applied before you put on your Kosmimata pieces. Pearls, gemstones and oxidized silver are especially sensitive to chemicals. Please remove your Kosmimata pieces when swimming, showering and bathing, doing housework and before going to bed.
