A sense of summer ..


Summer…lazy days, turquoise skies, a sense of freedom so good it can’t be legal…and all this captured in a ring…


It’s the work of Ileana Makri, a native Greek who brings the lilt of a folk song and the suggestion of a mythical tale to her work..but who’s also not afraid to explore the modern symbols of life.



There’s a wit and clarity to her work. ¬†You want to wear it for a smokey night on the tiles..or with bare feet and sunkissed hair..

I’ll take the sunkissed hair option every time..

All around the sign of the moment appears to be the evil eye, an ancient symbol that crosses cultures and religions, always ready to ward off danger.


What I didn’t know is that different colours have different meanings..adds to the appeal..



But instead of following the jewellery sheep, maybe there’s another way to embrace the trend..

Simple, effective…different…especially that last one..
