Sifis Stavroulakis


Sifis Stavroulakis was born in the mid-60s in the town of Chania, Crete. Crete’s natural beauty and especially its amazing plant diversity have always been his major inspiration for the creation of his jewelry. He studied the art of Gold and Silversmithing in Athens (1985-1988) and attended seminars in gemology and gemstone cutting in Chania. In the early 90s he set up his first workshop in his hometown where he still lives and creates handmade jewelry. Since 2011 his showroom-store is located in the very center of the Old Town of Chania. His creations have been featured in art galleries, museums, and exhibitions in Greece and abroad.

Sifis’ jewelry is delicately crafted out of 18K gold, sterling silver, brass, and precious or semi-precious stones. Οxidation techniques on these metals and their always-surprising color results also lead to the uniqueness of the style and aesthetics οf his jewelry.
He enjoys a more intuitive approach in his jewelry making, skipping the step of the design on paper, he rather engages with each of his jewelry pieces as a unique sculpture which is in constant dialogue with the maker.
