Across the sapphire blue seas of the Mediterranean dwells a jewel of ancient history of an enchanting country that is the source influence for Theodora… Greece. Over 1000’s of years through Byzantine times, Greece established a voice as a civilization. During a time of empires, the mystery of Greece inspired art through its compelling journey. The stories are woven into a rich tapestry of the Greek people and symbolize leadership, rights, freedom, protection from evil, and above all… love. These virtues serve as the inspiration behind every handcrafted design offered by Theodora.
Theodora is the name of the Byzantine Empress during the Greek Byzantine Empire. She was the wife of the Emperor Justinian, but many say that it was due to her resilience that Greece achieved a voice in their Christian faith and further influenced the development of religion, culture, and politics.
The name Theodora is a Greek name, which means “Gift of God”. We were compelled to dedicate this collection inspired by triumphs of Greek Society during Byzantine times influenced by the values that shaped the successful leadership of Empress Theodora alongside her husband.
We invite you to enjoy the collections of Byzantine inspired religious icon art and jewelry handmade by designers from the heart of Greece offered by our brand Theodora.We believe that blessings exist in every piece Theodora offers and that each creation is an expression of passionate faith to be treasured. “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matthew 6:21
