Behind the Design: Birdies

These playful swallows first appeared on the Minoan wall painting, Spring Fresco (2000-1500 BC). They were found at the site Akrotiri on Santorini (Thira), Greece and are thought to be the first real landscape painting.

They captivated our hearts during our first trip to Greece in 2005 when we got engaged and not only did they grace our wedding invitations but Peter had a special necklace made for me with their likeness for a wedding gift.

We are so excited to share this design with others. An embodiment of our love, our fascination with Greece, and this dream of becoming our own creative bosses. Oh, and my nickname is Magic Birdie!
