Fish Earrings - Silver & Gold-plated Silver - made by PRODROMOS
The beauty, strength and mysticism of the Mediterranean Sea has always been an integral part of Sister. On a recent trip to Crete, we discovered the work of Costas Prodromoms, an artist and silversmith at work and a fisherman at heart, who charmed us with his otherworldly, underwater creations.
The Thalassa Collection is here to transport you to the Aegean and remind you of hot summers on the islands, filled with romances and secret kisses on cobblestoned passages, hiding from giagia.
The creator, Mr. Kostas Prodromos is a Greek artist and silversmith based in Chania in Crete. His first contact with jewellery was at the age of thirteen since many of his relatives were jewellery makers. He admires the beauty of nature where he also draws most of his inspirations.
Handmade in Greece
Material: 925 sterling silver, gold plated
Size: 44mm x 9mm
SISTER jewellery is made of 24k Gold-plated 925 Sterling Silver. Gold plating naturally wears off over time, revealing the silver beneath. Avoid contact with fragrances, lotions, rough surfaces and cleaning agents, especially chlorine as it can permanently damage or discolour your jewellery. Make sure your skin is dry before putting on your jewellery. Always remove your gold plated jewellery in the shower, when swimming or exercising and store it in a dry and air-tight place. Clean it gently with a soft cloth only and avoid rubbing. Unlike mass produced jewellery,handmade pieces will almost always have imperfections and each piece will never be identical to another. This uniqueness is part of the beauty of handmade jewellery.
