ISLAND A WEEK: Aegean Collection - KOS


 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:

KOS (Greek Κως) is the island of Hippocrates (father of medicine) and the third largest island in the Dodecanese after Rhodes and Karpathos, lying close to the Asia Minor coast, between Nisyros and Kalymnos. Kos offers varied landscapes and a healthy mild climate most of the year, which made it, along with the Greek sunshine and its marvelous golden beaches, an international tourist center and one of the most attractive and beautiful of the Greek Islands.
