The vision behind Esculpta is to enable the experience of unexplored and deeply erotic dimensions of male jewelry. Desire for jewelry is carnal and primal, spiritual and existential - as ancient as man's erotic consciousness and his desire to mark his presence.
In this complex world individuality is becoming fragile. Your inner passion is all that's required to spark your vital energy and to leave your own mark on your surroundings. Esculpla knows the importance of detail in your personal moments and delivers keystone signature details to augment your most refined moments.
Esculpta's artisans lovingly hand make all our creations in limited quantities. We master our heritage from jewelry techniques from ancient Greece and the classical finesse of old Europe, bench-marking the quality of our work with old-school works of art.
Nikias was born in 1978 and lives on an Aegean island in Greece
"In ancient Greece, the Gods stumbled on mortal passions. Mortals in turn, enjoyed Godlike proportions of power and beauty. The long list of their achievements which still paves the path of our civilization is only a reflection of their clarity of vision and spirituality. The sun drenched olive groves and ancient ruins today remain blessed with light on form - surrounded by sculptures of the human being that testify that true beauty is a state of vision of man himself. As a child such exquisite scenery left an impression on me. This is my first source of inspiration."
As each man declares his presence in the cosmos, each in his own way, the universal desire of man to adorn his body and to declare his identity is Nikias' passion. "For thousands of years jewellery has aided a ritual of pleasure and expression. A sincere and subconscious expression that marks every person's energy. I find this deeply existential and erotic" Nikias
In an Athenian atelier the first seductive project emerged in 2003.'Le Cock Ring' revealed the subversive character of Esculpta.
A passionate male clientele evolved globally. Stories published about esculpta's penis jewelry were controversial and many full of praise. Even conservative minds were drawn to reconsider the aesthetics of a sex toy turned into an art form. Or conceive of the pre-existence of the art form itself from the contemporary adult industry.
In 2011 expansion with our first self owned San Fransisco branch gave a closer presence to our US customers. Manufacture continues to take place in majestic Greece.
Our distinct niche insists on the highest quality control. Today, Esculpta supplies men from diverse backgrounds from 40 countries across the seven seas.
Born in 1978 in England into five generation of silver-smiths of British and Greek origin, Nikias received a British education in Greece and a BSc degree at the University of London. He reports privileged to have grown up in the spiritual town of Delphi, the birthplace of the Oracle and the place that Zeus, God of Gods declared to be the 'navel' of the world.
Nikias crafted his first work in his Uncle's workshop at the age of 12. After graduate studies in London and a 4 year silver-smith apprenticeship and managing exports he developed long lasting relationships with world class museums. His clientele also has included royalties, heads of state and US first ladies.
"Personal clarity and harmony are distracted by globalization and its pace. Its easier now than ever to neglect our primal selves inside the matrix." he declares.. commenting on his jewelry as "small luxuries to complement one's uniqueness and to celebrate self-expression, which is itself erotic".
"Delivering a design is often painful. As a parent feels overwhelmed with relief after the birth of a long awaited child." Nikias cares for the comfort, confidence and pleasure entwined in his designs.
"Is it not paramount after all to tribute our bodies to the Godlike beauty inside and around us - the beauty and love that surrounds our mortal creation?"
