Tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Anna and I am the founder and designer behind Anna Monet Jewelry. Born and raised in Moscow, I moved to San Francisco at the age of 21. I’ve been creating jewelry from found objects since I was 13, and I learned metal work in San Francisco. My background is in fashion and I have years of styling and content production experience. Even though jewelry takes the majority of my time now, I am still very passionate about helping small business owners with art direction and content creation.

In my work I am interested in exploring our connection with nature and the environment and how ancestral skills, natural materials and modern aesthetic can coexist in a piece of jewelry. My world is ruled by color. Achieving stunning colors naturally is my passion and I love spreading awareness about the difference it can make in our health and the health of our planet. I am lucky to live and work in California, a perfect cultural and environmental backdrop for my explorations.
