In ancient Greece, diamonds were believed to be the tears of the Gods that had fallen upon earth. The designer loves their whims and quirks, their beauty and flaws. As a child he would throw stones at the sea and pretend to be Poseidon, and he still talks about how he loves the fact that the gods have limits, as do humans. Studying their traits, he has created jewels that match the character of Zeus, Hera, Athena, Poseidon, Hermes and Artemis.
Every god has his or her own beading style. Zeus, as a mixer-upper who loves to get everyone and everything into a beautiful mess, is represented with beads that intertwine with every movement of the jewel on your wrist. Hermes, as the protector of thieves, has the most gold, Athena, who finds beauty in simplicity, is represented by a bracelet with no beading at all. Well, Poseidon has two different designs. One for when he is angry and one for when he is calm. Is there a god and goddess in each of us? According to Evan, there is. It is up to you to find which one you are.
