Who We Are
Aerides jewellery is the brainchild of artisan jewellers Katerina Karampela and Constantinos Diamandis.
We live and work in our hometown Pylos,where we create exclusively handmade jewellery,working with gold,silver,brass and natural stones using a variety of traditional techniques like classic,filigree,granulation,bezel setting and more.
Against the imposed fashion trends and mass production culture we create with traditional crafts and skills,drawing our inspiration from the nature and rich history of Messinia.
Through the years of our work,we have participated in various jewellery exhibitions such as ‘Expression and design’ for ‘Kosmima’ in Thessaloniki and ‘Hellenic jewellery’ show in Athens.We ‘ve had collaborated with museum shops such as Benaki museum in Athens and Macedonic museum of modern art in Thessaloniki.Also we have been teaching handmade jewellery workshops for adults and children in Kalamata.
Our everexpanding collection is displayed and available now in our on-line shop.
