THE DESIGNER- Athena A.
Athena is a master in studying how to enhance and celebrate the human form.
After an award winning film editing career, Athena decided to switch careers and study shoe design in Milan, Italy and at the prestigious London College of Fashion. But her life plans were temporarily put on hold, after Athena was diagnosed and then spent a few years successfully overcoming cancer.
Years later, while on a trip to Kenya, Athena found a metalsmith in a market, whose craftsmanship intrigued her. Inspired, the next day she took him some of her designs and that became the serendipitous beginning of the Athena A Jewelry brand!
