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.

Working days

In the last few days the classes at the school and the jobs that have come up are quite enough and now different opportunities are coming my way on what I love to do, photography and jewelry making. Below you see photos of the construction of a ring with an open caston and an amethyst stone. An order which made me especially happy as it is one of my favorite stones. And apparently it was well liked, as soon as I posted it I received more orders!

One of the previous evenings, it was past time, but I wasn’t too tired to continue on the counter. I get a lot of satisfaction from working with metals and stones and also the lit candles and soft instrumental music kept very good company…

Below you see images from the design class at the School of Silversmithing. Sometimes we have real compositions and with a free drawing we capture them on paper. But the last time we once again made shapes in sketch form, to which we gave shadows, treating them as three-dimensional objects.

A lot of thought has gone into it…😂

I summarized in a small video moments from the activities I do these days. As you will see, I have moved the study and work area with the laptop to the loft. It’s warm up here and this part of the house gives me inspiration to write and edit photos. All this, of course, until the moment comes when I will pick up the acrylics and the brushes again, because as you know the loft is my little painting studio.
