After 8 years of working in two of the largest multinationals in the world, I have come to realize that the companies are big not the people who work in them.

I thought life was too short for someone to not be able to live the way he wants, so I decided to do what I love to design jewelry.

I started in 2013 when I created the first bracelets.

The reason was my need for creation.

I think what affects me is myself, jewelry that I would choose to wear. This has always been my source of inspiration.

I would describe my brand as one with a proper – alternative mood of minimal aesthetic.

I think the highlight of my journey was when I was commissioned to design the Breast Cancer Campaign bracelet for Madame Figaro in Cyprus and the five consecutive years of successful collaboration with them.

And my award at the A Jewel Made in Greece Awards 2019.

I haven’t’ participated in exhibitions abroad and A Jewel Made in Greece was my first exhibition in Greece.

I think Greece is the ideal environment for someone to be inspired and create. The beauty of Greece, our islands, our villages, the unending joy of the Greeks is incomparable.

My name is Christiana Kafa and I am the owner of the Christiana Kafa Company.
