Elena Jewelry Concepts is the design label by Greek jewelry designer Elena Vezyroglou. Elena developed a love for handmade items and especially self-made jewelry early on, whilst accompanying her mother, an art gallerist, to art shows and fairs. Even though she initially started out with a career in management, Elena soon rediscovered and succumbed to her love for jewellery crafting, leading her to complete a degree in silversmithing and jewelry design at Mokume, one of Greece’s most prestigious silversmithing schools. All of her jewelry is designed and handmade by herself, with great attention to detail and quality. Her workshop, a lovingly restored building, is located in the colourful neighbourhood Athonos in Thessaloniki, Greece. Her pieces are mainly made out of recycled sterling silver, sometimes in combination with other metals like bronze and copper and often gold-plated 24K. She particularly enjoys working with gemstones to add color and soul to her pieces. Elena especially loves making earrings and rings, as these are the jewelry items she also never leaves the house without. With her designs she aims to create simple, yet elegant and noticeable, edgy jewelry, that can easily be worn the entire day, starting at the office and following along to the after work drinks.
