Strong and Edgy, Soft and Delicate – are the aesthetic characteristics you will find in every piece of Tanja Ludyga Jewelry. By combining strong metallic parts with delicate crystals, Tanja Ludyga balances strength and femininity with the past and the present in a timeless fashion.

Fascinated with Goddesses and Queens and 40’s Hollywood Glamour, Tanja’s designs are very much inspired by Greek and Egyptian Mythology and by ancient civilizations, especially the Minoan Civilization of Crete.

Tanja began passionately designing her first collection after a life changing move from London to Crete, where she currently resides. This impulse to design jewelry was a natural and inevitable progression for her, revealing elements of her life’s journey through her designs. Born and raised in Germany, Tanja’s childhood was surrounded by her father’s antique and fine art collection and her mother’s vintage jewelry. Tanja later received a Degree in Fine and Decorative Arts in London where she gained many years of professional experience. In addition, Tanja also worked in the film industry, producing a short film.

Every piece is hand made in Greece by specialized craftsmen, from 24K gold double-plated brass and embedded exclusively with Swarovski crystals.
