Konstantina Pantelous was born in Athens. Her love for different cultures and foreign languages led her in the study of translation and interpretation with degrees from Universita degli Studi di Catania (Italy) and Portsmouth (UK) and Greece.
Since 2004 she works as a freelance translator in Athens.
In 2010 she decided to pursue her passion for jewelry making and created the brand Hermina Wristwear, naming it after her daughter “Hermina”.
She works with experienced silversmiths in Athens to construct all silver elements of her jewelry and then loves to adorn them herself with hand-made tassels and pom poms to give them that ethnic twist she loves so much.
