Handmade Creations Crosses and Orthodox Pendant
My name is Savvas Kourmazoglou, I am 38 years old and I live in Athens.
My family roots trace back to Istanbul, the city of arts and culture. Since I was 15 years old, I started my craftsmanship into silversmithing, and especially on the design of unique jewelery, its creation, as well as diamond setting. At the age of 20, I came in terms with ecclesiastical silversmithing, and in particular, pectoral Orthodox Crosses and Pendants, I was immediately fascinated, and started studying them as well as their creation process with reverence and patience with a total respect for this special art. My goal was, by learning this particular craft, to create such designs that would add a significant value to the great world of ecclesiastical art.
