meltemi is the jewellery studio of Sabine Handtke, art director and artist originally from Athens and currently living in London. my adventure with jewellery started a few years ago when tired of a computer screen, I was looking for a more tactile form of creativity. inspired by friends, I started designing and hand making unique jewellery pieces in my little home based workshop. meltemi was a natural next step and a nod to my Greek roots and the place I love most and call home - the Mediterranean Sea with its dark blue waters, light blue skies and the northern wind reaching the Greek Islands every summer.
all meltemi jewellery pieces are individual commissions, handmade and one of a kind. if you want to talk to me about a bespoke piece for you, please get in touch via the form in how to commission section.
