Aranwen's Jewelry is a one-woman business located in Athens, Greece.
My name is Vicky and I've been making jewelry since 2004 while studying Computer Science. Even though I got my BSc degree, I just couldn't see myself working behind a desk for the rest of my life. I had to follow my passion and create my own business.
In 2012 I took silversmithing classes for two semesters, and thus my knowledge and appreciation of jewelry grew.
Everything in my shop is handmade by me in my home studio, under the strict supervision of my four rescue cats. Being a vegan, caring for animals is something very important to me.
I look to the past for romantic inspiration and deliver designs with an alternative edge, pairing the soft and tough sides every woman carries inside. I was never the quiet type, never wanted to fit in or follow trends. Standing out from the crowd has always been a personal goal, and it also drives me in my work. I see no point in doing what's already been done, or creating "easy to wear" items.
Don't be afraid to stand out for doing what you can do best; being yourself.
