Hand wrought in sterling silver and 18k vermeil, the Minoan Collection is inspired by the colors ubiquitous on the beautiful Greek Island of Crete. It is an ode to the vibrant landscapes of Greece, and evokes scarlet sunsets, sparkling beaches, rocky cliffs, and turquoise seas. It is also an ode to the ancient Minoans, who also called Crete home, and their beautifully illustrated frescoes.
Cathleen and Kostas first met on a Greek island in 1984. They began working with jewelry while researching Byzantine architecture in Turkey. Their love of art, history, culture and architecture found full expression in jewelry design. Anatoli jewelry is a family business that is handcrafted in Woodstock, N.Y. Their sterling silver and karat gold jewelry is designed by utilizing both ancient and modern techniques.
