About Us

One-of-a-kind Artisan Made Jewelry, Accessories, and More


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. Thea 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.


Founder – Daphne Economou

Art enhances my life and I believe this is true for all of us humans. We are all artists when we express our life visions from our heart. So, I am an artist, a chemist, an environmental engineer, a marketing liaison and a few other labels I’ve picked up along the way.

There are many forms of art in life, whether it is dressing for the day, preparing a special meal, arranging a shelf, playing the piano, writing a silly song, dancing ballet, or designing an air pollution control system.  Art is most active in my life when I am creating jewelry and metal art objects. I equally love and appreciate the artisan works created by others.  

Zoethea is a creation of my heart, inspired by my passion for artisan made jewelry and other art objects.   ZoeThea’s mission is to provide a venue for the many wonderful artists who wish to share their creations with the world and to share my own journey as a metalsmith and jewelry maker.
