Fire (PYR - from which we derive words such as pyromania) worship was separated into two different forms, fire of the hearth, represented by Hestia, and of the forge, associated with Hephaistos. Perhaps these deities would have protected the city and her people against the damage of accidental fire.

It has been a privilege to work with the Vaphiadis family since 2007. They are one of the best manufacturers of sterling silver jewellery in Greece.
The collection is inspired by ancient Greek silver and gold coins, the art and jewellery of the Minoan civilisation, familiar symbolic motifs and images, and the animals that played a significant part in ancient Greek culture.
