SANKTOLEONO (Greece)

Simon Magus Ring
My inspiration for this ring was my cat Simon- he was named after Simon The Sorcerer, practitioner of magical arts who probably came from Gitta, a village in biblical Samaria.
Yellow bronze ring, oxidized and then polished for an antiqued style.

”Hi I'm Naya! I'm a jewelry designer based in Greece. I have a small lab in the heart of Athens where I design and manufacture my jewelry. The pairing of old and new forms the basis of the Sanktoleono creative process. Influenced by a background in Theological studies, ancient tribal religious symbols and motifs made from raw natural materials are processed using contemporary technology to produce one-of-a-kind pieces.
Aztec-like geometric motifs, primitive unprocessed mineral stones, raw brass and living, breathing materials like feathers make the stage of a mysterious ceremonial universe, both ancient and at the same time strangely futuristic.
For some of my designs I use simple CAD design methods and have them laser cut/etched as bronze prototypes in a laser cutting machine at a local print shop. Those are then refined and further sculpted by hand, by myself. 
I work with a local lab for my castings which I refine, cut, solder, oxidize and polish myself. Some of my jewelry is metal plated at an old local workshop near my lab.”
