TETE-A-TETE 01: POLINA SAPOUNA-ELLIS
Having been trained and worked as an archaeologist alongside renowned Greek archaeologists for years, eventually Polina Sapouna-Ellis decided, following her life-long passion, to make a shift into jewelry design. She had both the professional knowledge and the inspiration to take what Greece has always been famous for – rich history and culture – and turn it into jewelry that resonates the symmetrical and architectural shapes of ancient Greek silhouettes.
In our very first tête-à-tête, we sit down with Polina to discuss the challenges of setting up and running a fine jewelry company, her views on the particular market and the fashion industry in general.

If you happen to be in Athens, make sure you stop by “A Jewel Made in Greece” exhibition in Technopoli; the exhibition will also open in Dubai and Brussels later this year.
