What beautiful and unique earrings! They arrived professionally packaged in a neat box with an adorable bow and flower attached! I wore these earrings right away at the airport and got complements from a custom agent. I was happy to tell him they came from Greece! Now onto the earrings, they are extremely lightweight and comfortable to wear. At first I thought they were too long but then I got used to them. They can also be worn vertically if desired instead of as an ear crawler. I thought I would have to add an earring back but once they are in the hole and secure against your ear lobe they do not move or come off. I even swim with them on and had no problem, and slept with them too and they are so snug you don't notice they are there. To prevent moving around, press in the sterling silver bar tightly to secure. Love these!

About

From industrial design to silver smithing

Greetings from Greece,
I'm Kalypso and I have studied industrial design. During my study years I had the chance to get an indepth knowledge of art history, a subject that always kept my interest. In studying further art history, I became fascinated with jewelry, as I realised mankind history is inextricably linked with jewelry. The human race first adorned its body and then dressed it. Jewelry pieces were used to embelish the human body, or, to bring good luck and protect the bearer. Pieces such as amulets worn for good luck and health, charms to keep away bad energy and the evil eye. As the time went by, jewelry became also synonymous with power and social status.

I realised that the two constancies that drove my professional journey were, on the one hand the need to give form to amorphous mass and materials, to give them life and character, and on the other hand the embelishment of human body. As a consequence I decided to attended a silversmithing school, as jewelry design, was what I wanted to do.

A minimalistic approach to my creations, underlined by a simple but rather eclectic and easy to wear design, highlights my desire to see jewelry worn to adorn the human body rather than as symbols of power and social status. I love playing with shapeless pieces of silver, coper and brass giving them form and life and embelish them with precious and semi-precious stones.
Thank you for taking an interest in my designs. Happy browsing hope to see you again
