About Georgia Varidakis
Drawing inspiration from the natural world and the creatures around us, Georgia Varidakis designs one of a kind and limited edition pieces of ornate and delicate beauty. Each and every collection is handmade in New Jersey & NY using recycled metals and stones whenever possible. Georgia infuses a timeless and elegant feel, creating modern day heirlooms that are both dark and romantic and sure to make your heart skip a beat.
She designs with intention and finds beauty in natural stones. Picking stones with inclusions and asymmetrical or raw shapes, Georgia pairs them with textured and organic finishes for a look like no other.
Georgia grew up in New York and recently moved to New Jersey with her husband Steve, son August Zé and rescue pittie, Summer. While she has taken various stone setting and metal smithing classes, Georgia is mainly self taught and powered with caffeine and curiosity.
Georgia believes in:
- Being Eco Friendly: The studio is transitioning to be more green and GVJ uses recycled / recycled packaging. As of 2022, we are proud to be a registered sustainable business in the state of New Jersey.
- Inclusiveness: Our designs are made to fit everyone....literally. Rings are offered up to a size 16 and we do not charge based on size.
- Giving Back: As of 2022, 1 tree is planted for every sale made through onetreeplanted.org
- Promoting Individuality: Each one of a kind piece is designed to spark joy, inspire creativity and connect with its person.
