My name is Angelina Helioti and I recently graduated from the architecture school of NTUA.


After months of thinking, I took the risk of leaving life in Athens. The reason, the very quality of life of the metropolis. The fast pace, the pressure to “meet the deadlines”, the crowd of people and the lack of natural environment were things that led me to change.


I moved to a small, mountainous village in Arcadia, Stemnitsa. Although I grew up in Laconia, Arcadia is my place of origin and so in a sense, I feel like I have come home. I don’t know how long I’ll be able to stay here, but whatever it ends up being, I’ll try to enjoy it to the fullest.


Here I am enjoying everything I have been craving! Trees, rivers, lakes, quiet, everyday life at a slow pace.

I have a simple lifestyle, but it gives me inspiration for my artistic pursuits, photography, painting, and video making. At the same time, I am studying the art of silversmithing in a public school located here. In this blog you will find journal articles about my life here.


I hope you enjoy everything I’m about to share with you.

Overflowing creativity

Good morning dear friends!

Good weather is back here in Stemnitsa and I have a lot of energy for various activities.


A few days ago I made a hollow horn bracelet. It reminds of something ancient because of its austerity, but at the same time it is elegant and modern. I will also upload more photos to my Instagram profile (@angelinaheliotijewelry) for you to see.

Right now I’ve already started a new bracelet with a bit of an ancient Greek feel, which I can’t wait to show you!! I remind you that you can ask me for a price and order any piece of jewelry I upload here on the Silversmitghing page or on Instagram.

Along with the jewelry, an incredible inspiration and mood for painting has found me!!! I’ve been waiting all summer for this! I’ve already finished a painting I’ve been working on since spring and now I’m onto something new. The inspiration is from the summer landscapes here in the Arcadian mountains. I don’t know how far it will take me, but I will play with this theme in an exploratory mood for as long as I find it interesting.

Although it’s a bit of a mess on the mezzanine, the hours I spend here are so full. Time flies without me realizing it and even if I start to get tired I keep saying “one more touch” and this continues until the time comes when I’m invited to a friend’s house, when I absolutely have to stop.

The smell from the primer and the colors can cause little explosions in me. Bells ring and I start dancing with my hands. Sometimes of course I’m not happy with the result and I have to put the project aside and pick it up another day. But then, at an unsuspecting time, an enlightenment comes and I begin to correct what previously did not cover me. And there is great joy when it starts telling me something…

Now for a few days it will be full time painting. Although I don’t know when the real inspiration will come, sometimes if I decide to go to the little studio, with some classical music the long-awaited wave of creativity comes and takes me for hours.

Now I go to continue among the crates bound for the unknown, with a cup of black tea in company.


Hugs to everyone!
