A MULTI-TALENTED JEWELRY DESIGNER
Katerina Psoma could be both a director and a movie star, a writer and heroine of a book, a painter and a muse. She designs nostalgic jewelry for contemporary women, who travel, they play roles while remaining true to their selves, and are not afraid of bold colors. Katerina is a Greek jewelry designer with profound knowledge of fashion, the mythology of image, valuable materials, who is reinventing Greek jewelry using equal parts of humor and creative nostalgia, rejecting at the same time any folklore cliché.
-What do you wear when you leave your house in the morning?
My first outfit at 06:30 am when I walk my dog consists of my pajamas and running shoes. Later, around 07:30, when I leave to go to the office, I wear trousers with a nice blouse, usually silk, in the summer and skirts with sweaters in the winter. I wear dresses just below the knee all year round. When it comes to jewellery I stick to certain pieces and end up wearing the same for a whole week, mainly earrings or short statement necklaces.
-Do you have any favourite piece of clothing lately?
White trousers all year round.
-Which is the most emotionally charged piece of jewellery that you have designed or worn?
All my jewellery carry a part of my soul. The “Artemis” line with the feathers and the “Eclipse” line with the pearls are symbols of the heritage of Greece. Evil eyes and “amulets for hangover” stand for summer madness and laid back attitude, large jade earrings for female vanity. I cannot single anything out, since they all carry a piece of me.

-What makes you feel guilty or remorseful?
Feeling that I haven’t tried enough for something or when I forget birthdays or namedays…I am terrible at this kind of things.
-What’s in your fridge?
Stuff passed their sell by date.
-And what about your closet?
My passport and single socks.
-What do you have as a wallpaper in your cell?
A pic of my children and myself, all three of us tanned and together, riding a scooter and laughing.
-What do you do when you want to relax?
I walk around the Parthenon, talk with a friend, and play basketball with my boys. I also listen to Dalida and go to art shows.
