About

I just got back from an awesome trip to Greece. I was so inspired by the people, the food, the history and of course the jewelry.

I have always loved making things...about 10 years ago I started Practically Aphrodite using my beautiful and generous Greek mother-in-law's first name. She really was a goddess and continues to inspire me to be a better person.

Having retired from teaching, I am now devoting myself to the process of designing and making jewelry and other accessories.

I especially love getting new and interesting materials to play with. I have included some photos of some blue eye charms (mataki) I got in Greece. These charms are said to protect the wearer from harm. I also have been the recipient of some bone beads from Africa, (thank you Celia) and some fabulous clay beads made in Columbia. I can't wait to create some new designs...

    I love creating things for women to wear. new versions of the classics using different techniques and materials. My work space is one of my favorite places to be.

Feeling good about ourselves is important. Our style can often reflect who we are and what we feel is important. I make jewelry and accessories that I would love to wear myself.... real stones, real silver and real earthy, edgy style.
