ISLAND A WEEK: Aegean Collection - KARPATHOS

My AEGEAN COLLECTION features rings and pendants that have been inspired by the light and color of my beloved Greek Islands. These pieces are mixed media jewelry, where each piece has a ceramic shard as its focal. For each ring or pendant, I have completed the ceramic shard in a different way, using different materials and techniques such as metal (aluminium or copper) sheet, copper wire, polymer clay and acrylic paints.
Each piece of my Aegean Collection is named after a different island, so I thought I'd introduce them one by one! Welcome to the wonderful world of the Greek Islands of the Aegean!!!
Here is a beautiful and complete website about the Greek Islands:

KARPATHOS (Greek Κάρπαθος) is the second largest of the Greek Dodecanese islands, in the southeastern Aegean Sea. From its remote position Karpathos has preserved many peculiarities of dress, customs and dialect. Only the southern part of the Greek Island has been open to the slowly increasing tourism, whereas the northern part is totally unspoiled and very authentic, with various traditional and picturesque villages. Apart from its lovely villages, the island has many beautiful beaches, a wonderful sea and very friendly inhabitants.
