About

Stalo Xinari | theArtConcept Handmade Artistic Jewelry & soon Art

Hello and welcome to my handmade art jewelry world :)

I am a full time multifaceted artist, involved in many fields of arts like painting, crafting, jewelry design and music. Painting and crafting since a kid, I am fascinated and inspired by nature, the space and celestial features. I have grown up in an area in my country, where I was surrounded by several abundant mines, mountains and forest. My favorite walk is to the forest and near the old mines digging for some amazing pyrite and other raw beauties that could be surprisingly found in those areas. I have been collecting stones from all over the world all my life. I totally love crystals, rocks & minerals, stones and the creation of artistic jewelry with them. The creation time is like meditation to me. During this procedure, the feeling of the energy of nature flowing through my creations is so magic, makes me feel like I have become one with the universe.

A short story about the "artistic" me:
Being self taught, I always think out of the box with the result to differentiate and uniquely stand out. It started on 1994, at the age of 16 when I was chosen to design my first project, a book for herbal cosmetics. Hand pencil design of flowers, herbs, human parts like hands, hair, legs and body always within the framework of the writers’ ideas and concepts. The book has been printed in magenta color and colorful front cover.
Since 2005, I am involved in digital art and graphic design. I have worked on various design projects like conceptual design for music market like album cover arts, event posters and brochures. I have being involved in multiple design projects for corporate clients and organizations, designing promotional material for publications and promotional tools.
On 2007 I have opened the live art gallery "theArtConcept" at the city of Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus, organizing exhibitions and events all around the years hosting many artists local and international. On 2010, the gallery turned into my private art studio and moved into a new location. I have been a member and the Official Designer for "Female In The Arts" Cyprus. I have attended many art exhibitions with my paintings, arts and jewelry.
Jewelry Design was always a big love. I am crafting jewelry since my teenage years and at the age of 15, back in 1993, I manage to sell my small clay jewelry in a local handicraft shop called “the Craft Shop” in Makarios Avenue in Nicosia. On 2014, I have decided to open an online shop in Etsy and here I am.

Today, my collection includes jewelry with wire, clay jewelry, braided and beaded jewelry. All my pieces are handmade using my imagination and the magic energy of natural stones. I use various materials mostly natural stones, rocks & minerals, air drying clay, polymer clay (for key-chains / key-rings), wood, sterling silver, metal wiring and metals.

All my clay jewelry are free hand sculpted and are not baked. Due to the long procedures the clay must go through in order to dry, paint and varnish in layers to make it durable and water resistant, it usually takes around one month for every piece to be finalized. All my pieces are one of a kind and cannot be re-created or repeated. I consider every one of my clay pieces a work of art.

I have evolved my style and techniques thought the years, being in the jewelry design and arts all my life. I am also experimenting with other materials I came up to. At the end of the day uniqueness is the hyper reason so why not to invent new ways and stuff?

All the pieces listed in the shop are finished and ready to be shipped, except any custom made / personalized items. Have in mind that shipping is included in the price or better say FREE SHIPPING to any destination with Cyprus post, registered with tracking number. For Cyprus, orders are sent with local courier or accordingly.

Soon I'm going to offer also original paintings and unique crafts. All my creations are handmade / hand painted / illustrated and crafted by me with love.

Thanks for the visit and the support, I hope you enjoy my creations ☼
Love & Light,
Stalo

Clay jewelry Care:
Handmade Clay Jewelry must be treated with care and caution. The clay used is durable but not unbreakable. Pay special attention not to expose the clay and metals to liquids and perfumes. Avoid washing them or splash soaps or waters, bumping, bending and dropping them. Please remove them during shower, exercise or bathing at the beach. It is preferable to store them away from dust and kids. This way, you are going to enjoy them longer.

Clay jewelry Cleaning:
If you want to clean your clay jewelry from make-up and dust, you can easily wipe the surface with a slightly wet cloth or a tissue paper, gently.

Metal Jewelry Care:
Handmade metal and wiring jewelry must be treated with love and care. Pay special attention not to expose the metals to liquids and perfumes. Remove them before you shower, swim or exercise. Avoid washing them, bathing with them or splash soaps or waters on them. It is preferable to store them away from dust and kids.

Metal jewelry Cleaning:
If you want to clean your metal (silver/gold/copper/antique colored or plated and brass, iron) jewelry, you can easily wipe the surface with a dry cloth or a tissue paper, gently. You can clean the stones gently with a slightly wet cloth or a tissue paper but be extra cautious not to wet the metallic components. Only Sterling Silver, Stainless Steel and Aluminum metals do not tarnish but even those materials can change color when exposed to liquids.
