ABOUT STELIOS KARANTONAS
"Stelios is a Greek designer with numerous accomplishments; these include two scholarships in prestigious institutions and working as a freelance designer/maker in Thessaloniki and Athens, Greece.
It felt as a natural step for him to move to London, a melting pot of styles and designs with a centuries-long tradition of craftsmanship.
During his career, Stelios already participated in several international exhibitions and, after winning an invitation, his pieces featured in the 2015 Beijing International Contemporary Metal & Jewellery Art Exhibition, and the 2017 at MAD museum in Manhattan NYC. Stelios has been living and creating in London for a while. It is there that he created his own brand in 2014, unveiling his deeply artistic nature and his insatiable inspiration for original creations.
All his pieces are hand-made in his Hatton Garden workshop, where he constantly grows as a designer, working on a variety of gemstones, 9, 18 and 22-carat gold and 925 sterling silver. His custom-made designs have created a loyal clientele and a constant workflow over the past five years.
His creations combine simplicity with elegance and showcase an impressive flow of colours and high-quality materials, presenting an elaborate technique. They can be casual without being trivial and they are universal without ceasing to be original. The common feature of all his pieces is their effortless uniqueness and versatility."
