YSSO is a London and Athens based jewellery label from creative mother and daughter duo Alexia and Stalo Karides. Stalo, who is an archeologist and art historian, has over 30 years experience in jewellery making. Alexia – her daughter – is an ex-corporate lawyer and the Creative Director of the brand. Together they co-design all YSSO jewellery, with every piece hand-carved and crafted in a foundry and workshop near Athens. Individuality and uniqueness come across in all the designs which are often asymmetrical, sculptural and bold in style.
A shared vision of modern jewellery making characterises their timeless Greek inspired designs. History and creativity merge seamlessly. Cultural inspirations deriving from their Greek heritage, as well as their joined lives in France, and the UK highly influence the designs, and outlook of the brand.
