Fey Papanikou Jewelry Workshop

For Fey Papanikou, jewelry is not just a decorative object but an interaction with the character and personality of the individual. Her designs are inspired by geometry and architectural lines (which is no wonder, as she is an architecture graduate from the University of Thessaly). She enjoys creating pieces with simple lines that embrace the way the body moves. Check out her collections at her online shop.

Working with gold, precious and semi-precious stones as well as traditional and unconventional materials, Lito Karakostanoglou’s brand Lito makes whimsical pieces. Karakostanoglou studied sculpture at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Paris before pursuing technical drawing studies at the Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Bijouterie, Joaillerie et Orfevrerie. She travels around the world to find inspiration, as well as unique materials and stones. Besides her jewelry store in Athens, Lito’s collections can be found in several art galleries and stores across the globe.


A collaboration that started in 2004, Prigipo was launched by Kelly and Kalomira, two friends who enrolled in a jewelry manufacturing seminar. The duo expanded and started working in a workshop in central Athens, where visitors can pop by to check the collection. Based on the idea that their pieces turn the wearer into a prince or princess, their line is characterized by a clean and minimalist style in silver, rose gold and gold. Check out their collection on their website.

Daphne P

Making jewelry is a family affair for Daphne Papathanassopoulou. The daughter of Marianna Petridi, a Greek jewelry pioneer, Daphne grew up in her mother’s jewelry gallery surrounded by beautiful creations. She went on to launch her first collection in 2007. Working with metals and precious stones, Daphne focuses on creating jewelry that showcases the personality of the wearer. Involved in all aspects of jewelry manufacturing, she draws inspiration from everything around her. Her jewelry pieces are available at several stockists, including online.

Antonia Karra

The Antonia Karra jewelry brand is what happens when a hobby becomes a passion. Following her grandfather’s footsteps, Greek designer Antonia Karra draws inspiration from her Greek heritage and a plethora of other cultures, and works with materials such as silver and semi-precious stones. Applying knitting techniques learned from her grandmother, she sells her designs around the world.

After returning to Athens, she started attending seminars in jewelry creation, which allowed her to master traditional metalsmithing techniques, including the “lost wax” method. Koutsoukou’s jewelry is inspired by nature, modern architecture and ancient Greece.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
