About

For the love of jewelry!

I was born in the States, but raised in the beautiful island of Cyprus! Since I was five, I remember myself wandering around my family's jewelry store and workshop, usually annoying the craftsmen...for me it was play time! But as I grew up I got into it as well, and started having my own ideas, which luckily for me, I could watch them come alive through our craftsmen hands. So the day came when I was old enough to be a part of the family business as a diamond grader and a designer, but...something was always missing. I used to go home at night and experiment with all kinds of materials that had nothing to do with precious stones or gold. That's when I made my first fashion jewelry pieces. I used to go out wearing all these "fake stuff " as my family used to call it back then, and they didn't agree with it at all at the time..can you blame them? But I knew I found my passion, so I took the big scary step, left the precious jewellery business and started my own thing. I knew it was going to be difficult, but I didn't care. I love what I am doing!
Over the years I collaborated with fashion designers making their jewellery line for their line of clothes, been featured in fashion magazines, and making exclusive collections for each boutique I work with in Cyprus, Greece and now in the USA.

Love my work, my coffee, my wine, and my happy people!
