About

About Me

Always a lover of arts and communication, I studied Journalism in Athens, Greece and then continued my studies in Sweden. Living in another country for a while proved to be the springboard for a very important mind change towards almost all aspects of my life.
Coming back to Greece at the very beginning of the recession actually completed this mind transformation. Everything that was “in the plan” was being destroyed one after the other.
I was sad to realize how I had forgotten all the valuable things in life.

Silversmithing was meant to be the light that still guides me through the tunnel. Being able to be a part of the Etsy community helped me regain my self-confidence, bring up one of my real passions, connect with exciting, like-minded souls and most importantly share.
My jewelry is all about that. Sharing what’s in the heart. It’s all about love but also about the blood, the sweat, the tears (sometimes even literally) of both the sender and the recipient. I strongly believe that a certain darkness is needed to see the stars. I like to see my jewellery as the stars. Sometimes rock and chic, sometimes with references to history and the Great Hellenic Culture, and almost always embedded with a dark romanticism-a glimpse into my soul.

**On the making Process**

I mostly work with sterling silver sheet and raw natural stones. I get enchanted by odd shaped rough gems, their unique colours,random shapes and one of a kind nature.Pretty often, I don't work on designs. I like to leave my imagination guide me. Each gem carries energy. Each gem tells a story. Each piece is often created to match with one and only, unique recipient.
All my pieces are made from scratch by me in my studio in Athens, Greece. I use traditional silversmithing techniques and tools and I work with patina a lot. I love the tarnishing effect it brings out. Working to create an antiqued look or a vintage inspired style on a brand new piece of jewellery is a challenge for me.

I’m deeply connected with every piece I make. I like to think that people who choose to wear my pieces also connect with the energy they carry, right from the start.
That way they also connect with me somehow.
So different people, from distant countries and different backgrounds and yet so the same.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Most of the times I will accept custom orders from you. Please contact me through Εtsy convos so we can discuss the details.

Payment in case of a custom order is completed through 2 custom listings ("deposit" and "final") and-depending on the project-I will need about 5-15 days business days before shipment in order to complete your piece. Photos of the process and of the completed item will be available before shipment.

Please note that custom orders cannot be returned or refunded, that's why I will need your cooperation in order for my work to meet your wish.

Sizing details

Most of the rings can be made in your own ring size unless stated otherwise. Please always let me know your preferred size during checkout.In general, you might need to consider adding half size up for wider band rings. If you don't know your ring size, I suggest that you get measured by a local jeweller to avoid any mistakes while measuring.Please understand that since I'm not able to have you measured on my own,I will make any rings based on your request during checkout. Correct measuring is your own responsibility.Please make sure that you are ordering the correct size, as there is a fee for a resize. If you have any questions or need additional clarifications concerning sizing, do contact me. I'll be glad to help!

Wholesale availability

Please note that due to the handmade nature of my jewellery I cannot complete big wholesale orders. However, I will be more than happy to send you pieces of my work in case you'd like to sell them in your own shop somewhere in the world.
In that case, prices will be adjusted differently and it might take me a little longer to ship your order as I am the only person in my business !

Do feel free to contact me by e-mail or conversations for further information.

Returns/Exchanges

If you'd like to return or exchange an item that is on its original good condition, please contact me first.
I will only accept parcels that are returned as mail with a tracking number and in their own gift box/pouch that were sent in.As soon as I receive your parcel I will be able to proceed to a refund or exchange. Please note that refunds will be available less the shipping costs.Also, in case of an exchange, you will be responsible for the shipping cost of the new item.In case you provided me with a wrong ring size or preferred necklace length, please contact me. Most of the times I will be able to do a resizing for you.In that case a small fee might be applied.

Losses/Damages

-LOSSES-

All orders are sent as registered mail so that they can be trackable while in transit. Please understand that I'm not responsible in case of a lost package but I will do my best to get the problem fixed. (file a case for you, proceed to refunds etc).

-DAMAGES-

All items are packaged in boxes and in bubble envelopes for extra safety!
However, if, for some reason, your item arrives damaged or faulty contact me immediately on the same day you received it. I will ask you to send the parcel back to me (as mail with a tracking number and in its own pouch/gift box). As soon as it arrives to me, I will proceed to a full refund.
