''We design and produce handmade gold and silver contemporary jewelry. Our work can be identified as 'studio craft' demonstrating a conscious subversion of the materials and techniques used in traditional goldsmith. We use gold, silver, precious and semiprecious stones combined with everyday objects such as nylon fibres, feathers and silk threads.
Every item is the result of research and contemporary designing bearing references to ethnography inspired by Greek folk art as well as other nation's heritage. Handcrafted objects painstakingly executed in limited edition. These are elements that render our designs unique, timeless and precious.''
