Jewelry shop in Tolo, Greece

Jewelry shop Carmen, Tolo, Greece, Peloponnese

Since a couple of months our house is parked on a campsite on the peninsula of Greece called The Peloponnese, close to the lovely town Nafplio. Always on the look out for lovely jewelry and beads I spotted a gem of a jewelry shop: Carmen, situated in the small village Tolo.

 

Carmen

This jewelry shop is owned by Giorgos Mitsoulas, a goldsmith by profession. His mother is Spanish, hence the name Carmen.

Before he opened his own shop in Tolo he worked for several other jewelry shops, the last one in Nafplio. Giorgos has a very distinctive and recognizable style and I can understand completely why he wanted to open his own shop.

Because of the crisis not many people have the budget to buy real gold or silver jewelry anymore. Giorgos responded to this trend and he now creates gorgeous heavily gold or silver plated jewelry, often with some enamel. The end result is always beautiful and lush. And very affordable.

Giorgos likes to incorporate Greek as well as Spanish symbols in his jewelry, which makes it so distinctive.

The good news is you don’t have to travel to Tolo, Greece to buy your own genuine piece of his jewelry. He now sells online as well.

The other wonderful news is that Giorgos and I are talking about some sort of cooperation, meaning I will use his gorgeous pendants and components and incorporate them in my own jewelry. I will keep you informed.

You can find Carmen in Tolo, Greece.
