Anna Wales creates sophisticated and sensual jewellery, full of spark and shadow, that comes to life when worn.
Finding inspiration in repetitive pattern, shape and movement, Anna crafts each piece from countless delicate shapes which together from flowing, articulated pieces that sit beautifully on the body and are enticing to the touch.
Her designs radiate a contemporary elegance as she combines precious metals, gemstones and the ancient technique of Keum-Boo to create compositions of colour and texture with light and movement always at the heart. Stark contrasts or subtle transformations revel themselves with the bodies turns as satin silvers are set against sparkling stones whilst gold gleams out from soft metal greys.
