ISLAND A WEEK: Aegean Collection - MYKONOS

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:

MYKONOS (Greek Μύκονος) is a Greek island and part of the Cyclades, lying between Tinos, Syros, Paros and Naxos. Widely known as one of the most cosmopolitan islands in Greece, for its diverse and intense nightlife as evidenced by a vast number of bars and nightclubs, Mykonos has so much more to offer other than hot disco nights. Mykonos is a typical Cycladic island with the cubist charms of traditional Cycladic towns, narrow alleyways winding between the white-washed buildings, flower-bedecked yards and blinding white churches. Uniquely combining superb, sandy shores with a crystal clear sea and a stunning Chora, Mykonos is the supreme and inimitable expression of the Cycladic architecture: radiant whites and radiant blues.
