Interests

I love traveling the world! So intrigued by the unknown and the different, I have been led by my insatiable appetite for excitement to the heights of himalaya and scuba diving in one of the deepest seas in the world. A fan of extreme sports since childhood, my eyes have seen a lot. In all my endeavors I have found various sources of inspiration for my jewels. The oceans, the rocks and the landscape helped me imagine and design the current collection, which I hope you enjoy as much as I do.

Skills and Techniques

Silver and gold in primary form take their final shape through the usage of rarely used in the pro world techniques, like fusion, which renders the union between gold and silver unbreakable. I use fusion with high temperature to attach a slice of gold on a silver surface and create two-tone jewelry without the use of intermediate substances. I also enjoy giving texture to my jewelry using hammering. This creates a nature raw-like texture which I usually combine with geometric shapes.

Get to Know

My name is Thomas but my friends call me Tomis and I come from Thessaloniki, a town located in northern Greece. I graduated from Mechanical Engineering in Aristotle Polytechnic School of Thessaloniki. Studied jewelry-making since 1986 and went professional in 1994 when I opened my retail shop. By the end of 2015 I thought I should try and go international using e-commerce sites, because I want to see if people worldwide like my creations. Every single time, It's one of the best moments in my life when looking at customers' expressions and enthusiasm when asked to tell me if they enjoy my jewelry. All items are handmade and manufactured by me completely.

I am open to any suggestions you might have concerning minor changes in the designs you wish to purchase.
