I loved the blue version of this ring so much I *immediately* ordered the red/orange and it doesn’t disappoint! Absolutely lovely design and craftsmanship. The ring is eye-catching but not clunky. The colors are perfect. Thanks for the fast shipping and everything!!

Absolutely gorgeous craft and design on these. The detail in the sculpt is amazing! I especially love the asymmetry — that one is slightly shorter than the other, and one is meant to hang upside down to the other... they are incredibly similar but not identical, just like all things in nature! So happy I got them in addition to my rings.

About

Driven by the muses

Hello and welcome to my workshop!
Through out my life i have been a great admirer of arts, the four elements and all natures' creations in general. Therefore i was always after in finding a way to combine all these things and that was finally made possible in the jewelry craft.
So i spend hour after hour on my workbench, in the great company of my cats and my favorite tunes trying to subsume several gems to even sea pebbles, found in such an abundance at the coasts of Greece, in my jewel making.
I am mesmerized to an immense degree by the beauty and the plethora of pebbles, inspired by my visits to museums, to a great deal by mosaics and all these are depicted so to speak in a ''fuzion'' in my work.
You are fondly invited to check the fruits of my labor on my page and i would be happy to answer to any of your questions about it.

Frequently asked questions

Do you have care instructions?

Yes, please see the specific item you interesting, as there's other care instructions for silver or gold plated items and also different instructions for different gemstones, pearls etc.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Yes, I offer gift packaging. All my jewelry arrives in a gift box with bow inside a gauze pouches for safe transport and are ideal for gift.
If you're sending a gift directly to the recipient, a note letting them know who the gift is from is usually a good idea, i can write a sort messages too, but long messages are not possible.

How do i figure out my ring size?

You can always go to your local jewelry store and have your ring size measured there.
Otherwise, take a ring you are currently wearing and to measure its INSIDE diameter (distance across) in millimeters.
*** Please note: Be sure to compare it with a ring same width as the ring you are ordering. Ring comfort depends mainly on the width of the ring. Wider rings tend to feel tighter than thinner ones. So, if you are interested in a wide band ring you must measure a wide band ring that's because we often wear wider rings bigger sizes in band rings than in thin rings.

When will my order ship?

I am shipping regular orders in 1-2 business days after your payment.
If your jewelry is made to order, please allow 7 business days after your payment.
I ship every order by registered mail with a track number via Hellenic-post.

I need to return or exchange an item. How do i go about it?

If a refund is necessary, then the item needs to be returned to me unworn and in perfect condition. Proof of shipping will be required from the buyer and the item must reach me first before a refund will be given.
If you request a replacement piece, then the new item will not be dispatched until the first one has been received back by me. All return shipping costs will be the responsibility of the Buyer.Unfortunately I cannot accept returns or refunds on custom orders and these transactions are final.
For my ceramic jewels: if an item is broken on arrival, there is no need to return, just send a photo within a few days and I can replace (at no extra shipping cost) or refund, whatever is best for you.

Can i request a custom or personalized order?

Yes of corse i accept custom orders!
If you need anything made especially for you please feel free to contact me to discuss details and possibilities. We will work on this together. :)

Gemstone Properties and meanings

There are many books that write about the metaphysical properties of gemstones and crystals, in addition to color therapy. My shop offers a general idea, obtained from popular books and media, about the meaning of the gemstones and crystals. Because a crystal or gemstone is said to have one or more healing properties, either physical, mental, emotional or spiritual, it does not mean that you will definitely experience effects or benefit from any such properties. These informations are not a substitute for medical advice and does not promise specific outcomes.

Does your sterling silver contain nickel? What is oxidized?

No, sterling silver contains 92.5 percent pure silver and 7.5 percent copper.
I use dark patina to make oxidized items. The oxidized effect is a hematite finish or is almost black in color. Please note this process is not permanent, as wear and tear can buff away the layers of darkening causing an almost antique effect eventually.
