What you'll do

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 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".
Please note that I will be wearing a face mask during the experience.

Meet your host, Stephania

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!

Thank you Alexia for the dedication and the patience and the wonderful time you have given to us. We highly recommend this unique experience. You would learn how difficult is to make a hand made jewellary as small as a locket and hence why is it expensive. This experience will make you more appreciative towards hand workers and will teach you how to be patience, be in the moment and indulging deeply into the work. And what's better than having such a impermutable and kind teacher by your side while learning simultaneously. Just BOOK it!! It an unparalleled experience, which would make you a better person.. It's something which you would remember for very long long time....

Making our own silver pieces with Alexia was amazing. We did a pair of earrings and a bookmark. Alexia really took her time to help us making our little treasures perfect. Thank you so much!

I am so glad that I found this experience. Stephania was a wonderful teacher and was very kind patient and we had some laughs. She explained things very well and made the process easy to pick up with her assistance. I would recommend this class to anyone even if your not a big jewelery fan the skills you learn and the beautiful product you get at the end makes the experience so worth while and definately something to remember. I will revisit this class next time that I am in Athens. Thank you again I had such a wonderful time with a keepsake I will have forever Rhiannon

I highly recommend this experience to anyone interested in learning about jewelry making or wanting to make a personalized keepsake to remember their trip to Greece. I got hands on experience with all the tools to create my necklace piece. Completely worth the price, and I would do it again with friends on my next trip!

More tips

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.
