ISLAND A WEEK: Aegean Collection - NISYROS

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:

NISYROS (or Nissyros; Greek Νίσυρος) is a small volcanic Greek island and municipality located in the Aegean Sea. It is part of the Dodecanese group of islands, situated between the islands of Kos and Tilos. Its shape is approximately round, with a diameter of only about 8 km. Nisyros is an unspoiled haven of peace and tranquility, it possesses the clear water beauty of the Aegean sea coupled with a small village atmosphere. The island boasts various volcanic craters, the most important and biggest of them monopolising the tourists' interest as it is one of the biggest and best preserved hydrothermal volcanoes in the world.
