About

Alkisti's story

Hi! I am the designer and manufacturer [and sometimes photographer and model] of one-of-a-kind jewels "Alkisti Jewelry".

My name, Alkistis, originates from Ancient Greek Mythology and describes a fearless, brave, ambitious and active woman. I was born in Thessaloniki, north Greece and i studied design at the Department of Product and Systems Design Engineering in Syros, the capital island of Cyclades(Aegean sea). The quality of life, the beauty of the nature and the classy architecture of this small island made me fall in love with this place where I still live and work away from the chaos of the big city, which although has it's difficulties sometimes.

Inspiration cames through my everyday life, Bauhaus and Art Deco design movements.

I LOVE:
★ getting involved with different concepts and projects,
★ experimenting with tools and my hands,
★ exploring new materials and processes.

I enjoy to design and construct useful and decorative items, which are original and will last in time. Εco-design, sustainability and redesign of useless stuff as a way of creative recycling is something which i admire and i am trying to incorporate in my design process.

All my jewels are handmade by me, design and manufacturing, from the first to the very last detail in my little atelier and retail store located at Kotsovili 11, Syros!

I started very young playing with wire, beads and other materials. At the age of 20, i established a production method for rings made of paper by recycling old magazines, posters, brochures which i used to collect from different places and journeys. At that time i bumped into Etsy and this inspired me to start creating jewels not just for my friends and family. So that was my first brand "pART" =paper art.

Later i went to Porto, in Portugal, with Erasmus student exchanging program, for a semester to study jewelry design and that was my first experience with traditional metal processes. Then my passion for precious and semiprecious gemstones drove me on to design unique pieces with metal!

My favorite tool is fire.
The materials i use are: gemstones, shells, translucent and colorful resin, recycled gold, concrete, wood..
In the future I would like to experiment with casting and aluminum.

Follow me on facebook and instagram @alkistijewelry for pictures of my process and fresh designs!

Welcome to my etsy-shop!!

Every design is made by me with a lot of care and love. My designs are one-of-a-kind, original pieces. I use precious metals such as recycled gold, sterling silver and fine silver, but also i use more affordable metals like bronze and copper! All the gemstones that i use are natural semiprecious.

I focus on longevity, both in style and quality with unique small details.

Additional policies and FAQs
BASIC CARE TIPS:

Remove your jewelry prior of: exercise, housekeeping, having a bath or sleep.
Prevent jewelry from coming in contact with cleaning or beauty products.

Clean gently with soft cotton fabric, warm water and mild soap, then
rinse off the soap with lots of cold water and dry the piece carefully.

Black oxidization wears away and fade by use developing a unique, grunge silver color. If you wish, you can easily refresh it at a nearby jewelry studio or send it to me to refresh it free of charge.
