ISLAND A WEEK: Aegean Collection - TILOS

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:
http://www.greek-islands.us/

TILOS (Greek Τήλος) is a small Greek island and municipality located in the Aegean Sea. It is part of the Dodecanese group of islands, and lies midway between Kos and Rhodes. It is surrounded by imposing mountains, rocky and steep coasts, beaches with transparent water and caves. Tilos boasts Medieval castles, a Byzantine monastery, many small churches and a village that is a declared cultural monument. Its natural beauty is unique, with more than a hundred bird species, hundreds of wild flowers and herbs and sixteen different types of ecologically balanced habitats.
