Katerina Vassou

The Brand
Creating jewellery with a personality

A universe of spontaneous creativity, realized in handcrafted jewellery of great artistry.

This is the universe of Katerina Vassou jewellery, which has stood out, already since its first collection, with its innovative design, a wealth of charming forms and the use of unexpected material.

Semi-precious stones, silver, metal, crystals, bone, wood, rope, corals, get transformed, through elaborate processes, into jewellery with character; which, in some magical way, incorporates the personality of the wearer.


Its design mirrors the boldness in the use of new material and the desire to try fresh techniques, styles and forms. Yet, at the same time, one can identify a design philosophy that is not afraid to stay close to the feelings that the creative process bears.

With collections that get constantly enriched - by including pieces of bold shapes as well as clean-cut, sculptural designs - Katerina Vassou jewellery rises to provide the statement yet basic piece of a look, thus evolving the concept of accessorizing itself.

The uniqueness of the designs’ distinctive and expressive style has become popular soon after the launch of the debut collection. Today, the brand Katerina Vassou has acquired an audience in more than 30 countries.

The designer
The identity of inspiration

Her instinctive love for jewellery and its design, as well as her conviction that every piece of jewellery is meant to complete the look of a woman, instead of just adding to it, have given Katerina Vassou the motive to embark on designing her own creations and launching her namesake brand.

She designs and creates the jewellery herself, driven by an inexhaustible inspiration she finds in the material she uses, but also in the women she envisions wearing her creations. The unique forms, the exceptional textures and styles, are proof of her design philosophy, one that combines an experiential approach - where the material and its dynamics hold the main role – with feelings, which add character to her design; while she never forgets that her jewellery is meant to be worn, to be included into real looks, to acquire a new life thanks to the wearer.

And although sentiment and mood play a master role in her creative process, she never ceases to evolve as a designer, by trying new techniques, daring to work with unusual material, exploring the use of new technology, experimenting with forms and processes of metal.

The creation
And then, there was handcrafted jewellery

This is where it all begins; in a workshop bustling with creativity, where Katerina and her associates give life to her designs. Katerina Vassou jewellery is handmade, thus, the place is charged with palpable artistry. From the processing of metal to the gold and silver plating, from casting to polishing, and from sculpting the stones to making the bezels that will hold them, everything happens here.

The first steps towards creating a new piece of jewellery are taken with Katerina’s sketches, where she puts down its primal form, the outline of her inspiration, how she imagines the piece will look on a body. What follows is the material; metals are chosen, details are added, crystals, stones, colours, to set the tone to the final result.

The process of creating a piece of Katerina Vassou jewellery offers images of craftsmanship, knowledge and talent. The complexity of the processing, the tireless molding of the material, the choice of colors and textures, the testing on how the pieces embrace the wrist or rest on the neckline, even the finishing stage, all is transmuted into pieces meant to connect with their wearer and acquire a life of their own.
