ISLAND A WEEK: Aegean Collection - LIPSI

My AEGEAN COLLECTION features rings and pendants that have been inspired by the light and color of my beloved Greek Islands. These pieces are mixed media jewelry, where each piece has a ceramic shard as its focal. For each ring or pendant, I have completed the ceramic shard in a different way, using different materials and techniques such as metal (aluminium or copper) sheet, copper wire, polymer clay and acrylic paints.
Each piece of my Aegean Collection is named after a different island, so I thought I'd introduce them one by one! Welcome to the wonderful world of the Greek Islands of the Aegean!!!
Here is a beautiful and complete website about the Greek Islands: 

LIPSI (Greek Λειψοί) is one of the smaller islands at the northern end of the Dodecanese chain that runs up the coast of Turkey. It is located south of Samos and to the north of Leros. Lipsi still has the charm and atmosphere you expect from a tiny Greek island. Peace and quiet are the island's main characteristics... an island for those seeking a quite retreat, where life revolves around a few beaches, tavernas and cafes.
