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!

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”

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.

Wooden pendants

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.
