ZoeThea

In Greek “Zoe” means life and “Thea” means sight. Thea is the ancient Greek goddess of sight and shining light, from which all light proceeded.  She is the primordial daughter of heaven (ouranos) who endowed gold and silver with their brilliance and intrinsic value. Thea is also the mother of Helios, the Sun, Eos the Dawn and Selene the Moon.

The ancient Greeks believed the eyes emitted a beam of invisible light, which allowed one to see whatever it touched.

How better to describe the creation of Art…bringing life and light to one’s vision.

Zoethea is a creation of my heart, inspired by my passion for artisan made jewelry and other metal objects. I love working with different metals and stones, and learning and experimenting with new techniques and designs. I also appreciate the work of my fellow jewelry makers, many of whom have been mentors and teachers and who inspire me to keep growing.  ZoeThea’s mission is to provide a venue for the many wonderful artists who wish to share their creations. For now,  I take a few deep breaths and am grateful as I share my own journey as a metalsmith and jewelry maker.
