Hello to all of you.

As I wrote a few months ago my target or my philosophy was based on the support of local producers and manufacturers.

I believe that people who create with love must be supported by our business. And in this motif, we continue to develop our assortment. We keep still promote the handmade cork wallets made in Portugal because it seems that people really like them. And since there is something that you support, I have no reasons to remove those cork wallets from our lists, until the last stocks are finished.

I promised that our handmade products would be unique like each of us. And we keep our promise.

Our associates are people who like to create with their own hands. And I will not be tired of saying this. JO & LYD wants to support the man and the woman in our next-door and not multinational large companies. The handcrafted art, it was, it is, and it will remain, the art that highlights the overcoming of humanity.

By supporting new manufacturers we help them pay their bills. Their children’s schools. Have a decent life.

By supporting multinational companies, we help a few to buy the fourth or fifth most expensive house in downtown of New York.

If we want to see our world change for the better we have to be the first that become that change we want to see.

For this reason at JO & LYD, you will see products that are unique like you. Products that have the manufacturer’s signature and make sure that is not going to be produced in thousands of copies. Why? Because they are unique accessories!

Kostas Tabakis

I am convinced that you have never seen a handmade wooden pendant like Kostas before.

His name is Kostas Tabakis and he originates from Rhodes Island, Greece. He works as a cook in a cozy tavern in Rhodes town. His love and his passion for the creation and processing of wooden accessories are obvious. It appears from the result that is unique.

He has created wooden jewelry for about 5 years. Considering that such a beautiful living and simple material could embellish and express our inner world, it gives him the power and energy that, every wood carving looks more like mysticism.

Kostas uses many different kinds of wood. Each tree species brings its own propriety, its own energy.

In addition, he adds other metal materials of interest. In that way, he tries to bring thoughts, images, and concerns to the surface, but he does not disturb the organics of the main material that is wood.

Each wooden pendant carries something of his energy. It is true that the manufacturer’s energy is transmitted to their creations. And that applies to all arts.

The wooden pendants are clearly influenced by ancient Cycladic art, and Greek civilization, characterized by an anthropocentric character.

And combined with his everyday life and the pictures he gets from there, it gives his wooden pendants a unique look.

Wooden pendants are not just another accessory on the market. They reflect the relationship between the human and the jewelry made of wood. An art that comes from the past and meets the today, in the best way.
