Dina Cuomo (Elektra Jewelry) is a newcomer to Etsy. She has loved jewelry and gemstones all her life. Her travels to Greece and her Greek background have influenced her love of 18k and 24k gold and her choice to work with gold vermeil (24k over sterling silver). Dina makes one of a kind jewelry pieces to accomodate many different styles and fashion trends.
Although Dina began working with stones over 10 years ago, the demands of a full time teaching job and childcare did not allow her the time to follow this passion. Finally, the time seemed right and she has started creating and selling her pieces. Dina also loves to sketch with charcoal and colored pencil.
Dina works primarily with gold vermeil, Bali sterling silver, and vintage glass beads. Recently she has added whimsical dog tags to her collection. After all, pampered pets deserve to have “jewels” too.
