ELINA AFENTAKI

THE DESIGNER

BIOGRAPHY

Elina Afentaki is a London-based Jewellery Designer and Artist. Her jewellery creations mirror the outward expression of her inner sentiments. During her three - dimensional Design studies she has gathered invaluable hands on experience on the birthing of objects, by giving them form and bringing them to life, while exploring their more emotional aspect.

Graduating top of her class, she attained degrees at GIA and
Camberwell College of Arts, amongst several other specialised studies in Jewellery and Gemology. In 2021, she won the London Jewellery Design Award granted by The Gemological Institute of America. As a GIA - certified gemologist, Elina was trained at various jewellery positions, from widely recognised jewellery houses to smaller labels. These eye-opening experiences have cultivated her skills and fuelled her passion to sculpt her own universe. 

​Born and raised in Greece, Elina has always had an intimate relationship with jewellery. Growing up in a family surrounded by precious collectibles, antiques and art, she was sensitive to the vibrations of culture shaping her point of view. However, her passion for fine jewellery wasn’t born until the passing of her late aunt who herself was also a devoted collector. Elina believes that gemstones are rarefied treasures of the natural world that function as sentimental clutters, radiating empowerment, strength and meaning through exceptional beauty. ​She aspires to encourage women to express and wear their inner most, by creating pieces that evoke sensuality, femininity, and power.
