Ithaca's treasures/Ithaka kincsei
Who would not remember one of the first mandatory classroom readings from the Ancient Greek poet, Homeros, author of the Iliad and Odyssey? Ithaca, the motherland of king Odysseus offers for its visitors besides the historical path of these Greek epics, hearthbreaking see sceneries, a wide range of local art shops with handmade jewellery. During our stay I discovered NAFSIKA Gift Shop, where we could see some nice sets from local Greek Designers. Here are some nice jewelry from Spyriliotis Bijoux and Organic Jewelry from Nafsika. Spyriliotis Bijoux artist team is working with mate gold, shiny gold, bronze, mate silver, copper or Alley. The set I chose to have it reminds to the Byzantine style we could see in the archeological museums in Thessaloniki.
Nafsika combines silver with organic material to create unique and real statement pieces (www.nafsika.etsy.com).
