Cyclades was founded in 2017 by London based third generation Greek artist and goldsmith Leto Lama.
Inspired by Ancient Greek History, Gods, Godesses, Titans, Fairies, Astrology and Nature, every creation is a wearable piece of art that is meant to be loved by its recipient for lifetimes.
Leto is a third generation artist and a goldsmith who embraces traditional techniques to create the Cyclades collections such as drawing, the ancient lost wax and melting, reusing gold metal scrap.
Leto sketches the intitial design either on paper or directly on wax which she will then give it a form and hand carve in her London studio. The created model will be casted and will be then cleaned, polished, add texture using hammer or other tools and will then undergo stone setting subject to the design until it reaches the last stage of the process which is the final polish.
Following British Traditions for UK customers and as a registered jewellerer the piece will then be sent to the British Goldsmiths Assay Office for Hall Marking.
The One of a kind pieces are entirely made by hand and they have a free form, natural style full of perfect and imperfect, expressive character.
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
