Her main source of inspiration comes from an old railway line just down the road from her home. Here the scenery is ever-changing and each visit reveals a fresh source of inspiration and something exciting and new to look at.

Anna’s current collections are a mix of precious metals and soft leather. She uses traditional silversmithing techniques, but the introduction of leather into the pieces creates a fresh approach to the jewellery and gives it a unique and tactile element for the wearer to enjoy.
