It was so fun receiving a package first from Greece, second it was so beautifully decorated in lace gift bag! Love it! I have shared her link with my friends and I am sure I will be buying more jewelry 👍

love them - they are so pretty!
Welcome to my shop!
My name is Valia (but you can also call me Laliou, my nickname as a kid), I love arts and crafts, and I'm totally and utterly obsessed with underwater photography and anything sea-related.
Over the last 7 years or so, my tireless partner-in-crime and I have been island-hopping all over Greece, taking thousands of photos below and above sea level (you can take a peek here: www.instagram.com/laliou).
A few years ago I came up with the idea of combining our underwater and macro shots with my all-time-favorite material: antique bronze & silver.
I've always been fascinated by handcrafted jewelry but had only experimented with fine silver, semi-precious stones and polymer clay, so I thought I'd learn how to use new materials and maybe pick up a new technique.
One day I started playing around with epoxy resin (a.k.a. liquid glass) and I haven't stopped since! Working with resin can be rather tricky at times, but the end result is definitely rewarding. Nothing beats turning your favorite photos into wearable art that shines and shimmers as it catches the light...
So here I am, selling handmade vintage style jewelry with a modern twist for all the sea-lovers out there!
Thank you for visiting! :)

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
Interested in a custom piece of jewelry? I can turn virtually any image into art you can wear. So send me your ideas and I’ll create something unique just for you. :)
Gift wrapping and packaging
Your jewelry will arrive beautifully gift-wrapped at no extra cost, and kept safe and snug in a padded envelope.
My jewelry is water-resistant but not waterproof, so go ahead and walk in the rain if you want to... but take it off before jumping in the shower!
Please note that epoxy resin is very durable but if it does get scratched you can simply buff it using sandpaper and then recoat it with clear polish.
I try to offer an accurate description for every item and always take photos using natural light. However, keep in mind that colors may slightly vary since not all computer monitors have the exact same color settings.

If you want your order to be trackable, I can offer you a Registered Shipping Upgrade. All you have to do is select the Registered Shipping option during checkout (additional cost: $5 for Greece and $7 for everywhere else).
