On Etsy since 2015

Doing one thing was never my thing. Multi-task person here 💥

Hello everyone! I am Giovana and I warmly welcome you to my shop!

Since I was a little girl I remember I liked to cut through my toys to see what's inside. I was curious to see how they work and make different kind of customizations. Some times that was working nicely some times not..

I grow up in Athens Greece, in the centre of the city. During the summers I was living in Zakynthos (Zante) a beautiful island in the West side of Greece. I have very beautiful and peaceful pictures in my mind from those childhood's years.

My grandpa was a metalsmith, my father too. So bench and tools were always in the scenery. I remember my self experimenting on my own in the lab when no one was around. It was my secret paradise. I always liked making things and using every material which seemed interesting.

I started making jewelries when I was a teenager because I wanted to wear unique and personalized pieces not just another jewelry. Since then is the one thing I always enjoy to do and give me joy, wellness and balance.

I also enjoy challenging my self with everything that seems interesting. I like sewing my own cloths, bags and clutches. I enjoy drawing and painting and I like playing around with clay and I enjoy crafting.

I studied Social Work which fascinates me and challenges me every day . My artistic self works complementary to this side because creating is quite therapeutic and helps me develope my self and get better in what I do. I love Mental Health and it is well known that art is a distinct and productive way to deal with people with mental illness.
I worked for one year in 2010 in Holland helping people with mental health issues. I was doing therapeutic pottery, painting and jewelry-making workshops. It was a very important year in my life because I lived abroad and I had the chance to work with people with different culture and different perspective. It was quite an experience.

After that I came back to Athens and soon I opened my own studio with another woman. We worked together for about 4 years learning and inspiring each other until it was time for me to move on.

During these years I tried lots of different techniques and different materials. But always making jewelries and accessories. I used paper, polymer clay, resin, fabric, mettal and a lot of natural material as wood, stones, salt, sand and more.

Soon I discovered I had a big crash on Tribal Jewelry. From all around the world! I love ancient Greek, Egyptian, African, Indian cultures and their unique Jewelry. There is magic in all of these cultures and I like to praise that. I started studying all these interesting themes and incorporating them in my style of making jewels.

On 2015 I opened my Etsy shop and started selling my creations. It is a long process of learning and making it work until this day.

In the same year I met the love of my life who is a Gold Smith himself. That have gave me a whole new perspective. Together we started a new experience and a new world of metal opened in front of my eyes.

My curiosity always drives me forward and experimenting is what keeps me going. That gives me purpose and joy. New materials and techniques is for me what a full bag of candies is for a kid!

Recently I opened my new workshop-showroom at Kipseli, an urban area in the center of Athens. My partner in life is always willing to assist me in everything required. Our beloved companion Lord Poco (a cheerful Pomeranian) is always around our feet asking for attention and love.

We are taking care of everything on our own. We design and creating all objects from scratch, we photograph them, we model with them on and we are running our shop and social media.

Every little thing we make takes a lot of care, love and attention in order to fulfil our high standards. We always like to try new things and that explains the diversity of objects in our shop.

Personalized and unique jewelries is our thing so please go ahead and ask if you have some customization in mind. We will more than glad to make something specially for you.

🌟Are new workshop-showroom is now based at Kipseli in Athens. A multi-cultural urban area in the center of the city. Visit us if you are around! Details for visiting hours and map directions available in Google/LaouLaou Jewelry & Accessories🌟
