Bring your own idea and we will fabricate it together, we will make either a ring, necklace, pair of earrings, a small piece of art or anything else you have in your mind !!! Please remember that your design should weigh approx. 4.5 gram of silver (about the size of 3x3cm). If you wish to have a heavier piece (for instance a bangle or neckpiece with chain) that is heavier than 4.5grams let me know so I can advice you and negotiate it at the workshop (an extra gram equals to 1euro) Except of silver we can also use bronze, cooper and even gold, as these metals add colour to some particular ideas. (The option of using gold should be discussed beforehand , as the price rate is far different from the one currently stated) Try to keep your idea simple and in 2 dimensions, so we can accomplish it in about 3 hours. If you are not so sure about what to create, you can choose any of my designs, or I can advice you. At first we will design it and after that we will transfer the design on the metal and cut it out with the saw. Then we will smoothen up the metal's surface with emery paper and at last we will polish it so it becomes very shiny. The piece is yours and you can call it "My Athenian keepsake" or "My unforgettable time in Athens".
I am the host's sister and my name is Alexia. I have been studying silver smithing and design since 1999. In 2004 I opened up my own workshop. The creation and the joy has been developing through out the years !!! Three years ago I moved my jewelry workshop in the center of Athens near the temple of Acropolis. The attraction is large as well as the inspiration. I believe that this kind of experience is going to be unforgettable for any visitor. Creating your own souvenir that could be a small object or a jewelry piece is going to give you a great sense of the Athenian atmosphere!
Juice tea, coffee, biscuits
tools, silver,any other metal, apron, goggles
We are going to be in one of Athens most popular quarter's, simply because we are very close to the temple of Acropolis, the area of Plaka where you will find traditional restaurants and souvenir shops , the Athens Parliament and Monastiraki's vibrant and colorful square!!!

Please note that an extra gram of silver equals to 1euro if you wish to use more than 4,5grams. Polished nails may get ruined while using emery paper and polishing the piece. Also just in case wear shoes, sometimes we drop tools on the floor and we want to keep our toes safe.
