Spotlight on Aktis Alexia Jewellery

Alexia Gkika, founder of Aktis Alexia Jewellery is one of the lovely companies we’ve spotted on social media over the past few weeks. She crafts beautiful, handmade jewellery from her home in Thessaloniki, Greece.

Alexia told Home & Giftware Magazine: “I love to find inspiration in my cultural heritage and the beauty of greek nature, the blue sea, the rocky mountains.
I was born in Germany and grew up as a child of an greek immigrant family. When I moved to Greece I worked as a German teacher and literary translator for almost twenty years, until I was diagnosed with Lupus and decided to follow my dream and live my “personal myth”. So I studied at jewelry school and set up my small business AktisAlexia. Aktis means light, simply because this work is my light.

“Every piece of my jewellery is handcrafted and one-of-a-kind. I love to mix ancient with contemporary shapes and techniques. You can find me on Instagram Twitter and my jewellery is available to buy via my Etsy webshop. I would be delighted to make you feel unique with my work!”
