Cyclades was founded in 2017 by London based third generation artist and designer Leto Lama.
Inspired by Ancient Greek elements, Gods, Goddesses, Fairies, Astrology, History and Nature, every creation is a wearable piece of art that is meant to be loved by its recipient for lifetimes.
Leto as a third generation artist embraces traditional and modern techniques to create the collections such as drawing, the ancient lost wax technique and 3D modelling.
The accessories and the jewellery collections have been loved by many people around the world and are available online as well stocked physically by boutiques and department stores in Europe, UK, USA & Australia.
Leto sketches the intitial design which depending to its complexity she will then sculpt by hand using the ancient lost wax technique in her London workshop. For more intricate pieces and orders she will use the assistance of 3D design modelling to create a flawless piece.
The entire collection is using precious recycled metals such as 18K, 14K gold, platinum and natural responsibly sourced precious and semi precious stones like Emeralds, Diamonds, Rubies, Sapphires, Amethysts, Moonstones, Aquamarines, Opals, Tanzanites, Quartz etc

Cyclades is also registered with The Goldsmiths Company - Assay Office in London. If you want us to deliver your jewellery order in the UK we may have to add few extra days on our delivery time for gold - platinum hallmarking.
Focusing on quality while celebrating colour, the scarves and the accessories are initially hand drawn and then digitally edited by Leto.
The accessories collection is then made in Italy at beautiful Lake Como by Italian Artisans and local family owned manufacturers with years of experience in the sector, using the best silks and fabrics.
The silk scarves are handrolled and finished by hand, a traditional method and a time consuming process.
