About

WELCOME!

Check out our etsy blog feature to learn more round my story:
https://blog.etsy.com/en/featured-shop-break-a-stone/
〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰
I started making jewelry full time in 2012.
My brand name 'Break A Stone' pretty much describes the reasons it all started.
It not only describes my aesthetic but also describes me and my point of view towards life. I wanted my brand to represent my life’s philosophy of breaking though the hardships and personal drawbacks but mainly breaking through this drama (referred to as the Stone) most of us unfortunately were subject to all through our upbringing that ‘life is hard and you d better go the safe way…study sth, make a career, be useful to the ‘system’ and have kids’. When instead I decided I d better lead a life I choose for myself. I am not at all criticizing those who go with the flow, but after having tried all of the above myself I have decided that some of them don’t exactly work for me.

It seems that design has just been my main interest throughout the years and still is growing. Making jewelry involves hours and hours of work on the bench using all kinds of hand tools, which has also been one of my sweet spots. I also think that because jewelry totally reflects personality and defines the style of its owner and along with the fact that a piece of jewelry can accompany someone through a thousand times and years this just adds to its value for me.

I’m fascinated by natural crystals as one can clearly tell from my work. The shapes and colors of them often define the piece that I’m creating. Sometimes the metalwork is just the “frame” to this beautiful ‘painting’ drawn by nature.

I can be inspired by anything that catches my attention. This differs from time to time. People inspire me, music, nature.I am also one of those people that are mostly creative when they feel really happy or sad. When going through such periods in my life its just like a little box opens up to let all creativity out wild and free.

I hope you like what you see here!

Additional policies and FAQs
★Custom Orders★
If you need anything made especially for you feel free to contact me.We will work on this together.

★Process★
I use only quality metal to create my designs and handselect each stone you see on my jewelry.

I polish and seal each piece by hand and leave my studio in the best state possible.

Due to the nature of brass when it comes in contact with the air or your skin it will tarnish or darken.This is a natural process and I personally think it adds an antique look to my pieces that I really like.

Some people find that brass discolours their skin temporarily. If this is your case perhaps consider one of my sterling silver versions or ask me about plating your desired piece.

If you need any information on how to clean your jewelry please contact and I will be happy to help you.

★Wholesale & Consignment★
If you are interested in carrying my line in your shop please contact me through convo or sent me an e-mail at breakastone [!at] yahoo.gr
I will sent you my linesheet with all my available pieces for wholesale and their prices or you can find me at Etsy Wholesale.
I don't do Consigment at the moment but feel free to ask me about it. You never know!
