Anny Almasidou was born in Thessaloniki, Greece. She studied Interior and Spatial Design at the Chelsea College of Art and Design in London and began her career as a jewellery designer in 2005. Her love of the urban landscape, famous architectural structures, and the elegant forms found in nature gradually transformed into unique pieces of jewellery made of gold, silver, gold-plated silver and brass, as well as precious and semi-precious stones. Her work quickly became distinguishable, selling online in Greece and abroad, and via selected boutiques in Greece, London and the U.S.A. In 2007 and for four consecutive years her jewellery was selected for sale in the Benaki Museum Boutique Shop. In 2016 she designed the limited edition bracelet for the charity race “People Run”, and in April 2017 she was chosen by Marina Vernicos, founder of the not-for-profit organisation CREAID, to participate in their ‘designer jewellery’ project where she donated a piece designed exclusively for their auction. For the last two years Anny has been developing her brand, Koko Di Alma, establishing her trademark style of easy-to-wear jewellery, recognisable for its architectural lines and industrial character. The collection is currently sold at galleries and stores throughout Greece such as: The Stavros Niarhos Foundation Cultural Center, The Benaki Museum, The Theoharakis Foundation of Art and The Municipal Art Gallery of Larissa.
