As a creative myself, I really connected with the owners of this jewellery shop/ gallery, their work is so unique, fine metals, gemstones, design and creative flair awaits you.
Their kindness, their welcome with a good Greek coffee allowed me to admire and choose some jewels of the creation of Alexia.

Love, passion and honesty are the ingredients of all these handmade traditional products which you can find in this small shop, situated in Koutsounari, about 10 kilometers from Ierapetra.
