Hello! My name is Athina Vazeos and I am the creator of Coastal Dreamer Designs.  Growing up I was always known for my eclectic layering of jewelry! Most of my pieces were either collected throughout my travels or given to me by my Greek grandmother (she has amazing taste, when it comes to one of a kind jewelry).  I have always felt that jewelry is a creative tool for self-expression, and most importantly, the key to completing any outfit! It wasn’t until after a serious athletic-induced shoulder surgery, when my passion for jewelry craftsmanship started to overcome me! My surgery recovery lasted six months, making it difficult for a high-level athlete like myself to keep busy.  It was at this point in time, when I began to dabble in some jewelry making. My passion for crafting jewelry only intensified as I started to immerse myself back into the things that inspired me.  My love for being in the woods and by the ocean fosters my creative spirit.  I draw a lot of my inspiration from the outdoors, especially from weekends spent exploring around my rustic cabin in the woods.  It is through these passions and explorations that Coastal Dreamer Designs was born.

Coastal Dreamer Designs is a collection of unique and handcrafted jewelry inspired by the beautiful west coast.  The collection includes bracelets, necklaces, rings and earrings. In my designs, I focus on incorporating unique stones and materials that represent the intricacy, depth, and beauty of nature. I have always been intrigued by how a piece of jewelry can resonate so differently with each individual person.   This fascination is what drives my creativity and allows me to continue creating new pieces for not only myself, but for jewelry lovers alike! Coastal Dreamer Designs is a jewelry line intended for those who dream of being by the ocean or exploring in the wild.

Can’t wait to see you in Kelowna! Hopefully you can find something special just in time for Mothers Day! And maybe a little something for yourself too!
