KEEPING THE STORY ALIVE
Sea Of Lace is a brand with mission:
to support the fading art of filigree and
the remaining local filigree workshops.
In summer 2017, historian and
journalist Eleni Nicolaou
witnessed the traditional jewellery technique
which is still taking place on the island of Cyprus
in way smaller scale than before.
A year later, after researching and realising that
this art is on the verge of extinction,
she decided to bring it back to the market
with Sea of Lace.
SOL pieces come straight from
the local workshop in Cyprus
and they are handcrafted with a great
attention to detail by a master artisan.
Each purchase bring us closer in
reviving this old profession and
in training new artists in learning this
Boxes and jewellery pouches are also
handmade by locals in order
to offer an authentic cultural experience with
every SOL purchase and
to support our producers.
The name of the brand is inspired
by the sea that surrounds Cyprus and
by the technique itself as it often suggests lace.
Let's keep this story alive...
