My love affair with jewellery began when I was a small child. At the age of six I would beg my mother to let me wear her big clip on hoops and parade around the room.
For me, jewellery marks important milestones in life; celebrating with family, getting together with friends, and special, personal moments. It not only re-connects me with my memories, but also allows me to express the influences of amazing women who have inspired me throughout my life.
The company was born in 2015 with the aim of designing jewellery to be an extension of the wearer, as a representation of luck, protection, strength, and love. It started with the simple and minimal evil eye bangle hand-crafted from the finest material. I made this piece to express my philosophy of life at the time: projecting and receiving positive energy.
My roots are a big influence on my designs, and I see my jewellery as a visual expression of ancient mythologies. Extensive travels around the world have further expanded the influences in my designs. Inspired by the cultures, societies, landscapes and myths of other countries I try to translate these stories into pieces of wearable art. For me, jewellery has beauty, but more importantly, has meaning.
Today, we hand-make every piece in our Athens studio, with master jewellers who share our commitment to quality and our passion for creativity. We believe that true style is effortless, that strength is sexy, and that everything is infinitely more beautiful when it’s worn with positivity.
