This is the second candle ordered from Akatergasto. Exquisite . It was a pleasure to deal with Olga. I was even given a gift with my purchases. What a wonderful shopping experience.

About

A fragment of nature in every creation

I am glad you are visiting my store.

I reckon that for many of you the name of my store remains a mystery. “Akatergasto” is a Greek word meaning “raw”. Why raw you would say? It’s because I craft all my jewelry from raw silver, a perfect material due to its natural properties. Silver takes its final form while I chisel and handle it in a totally handmade fashion. This is what makes each of my creations unique, after all. Each creation is completed with the use of colorful enamel or gems.

But, how did it all begin? Picture a young girl, constantly covered in colorful paint while shaping clay, or with paper in one hand and scissors in the other cutting out butterflies. That girl grew up and never stopped seeking for different art forms to express her creativity.

Well, that girl is me, and I have finally found the art form that best expresses me; jewelry making. I started my studies as a handmade jewelry craftsman in 2006 and I have made it my profession ever since. I timelessly maintain my restless spirit, I obtain new skills that improve my handicraft and I constantly search for new materials to handle.

I have been creating my jewelry in my own workshop since 2012. I draw my inspiration from the colorful Greek nature that generously offers me beautiful imagery. Sunny, happy spring days are one of my favorite subjects.

I am Olga and I will be glad if you add one of my creations to your collection.
