Katerina Grolliou was born in Athens. She studied jewellery design at the State School of Fine Arts in Florence and worked under the tutorship of the sculptor Magni Egisto.
Katerina Grolliou pursued her quests in jewellery design at the ateliers of pioneering artists in Paris and later made her way to Seoul, where she was introduced to the traditional art of the Far East and, at the same time, introduced Korean students to modern jewellery design.
In 1990 she founded her atelier in Athens, where she has been designing and producing her own creations in silver jewellery and microsculpture.
