“I didn’t really think of jewelry as something that was going to become my life’s work—I was just doing it for fun,” Anna Sheffield explains. While studying fine-art sculpture at the Academy of Art in San Francisco, Anna dabbled in small pieces as she focused on big ones. “I started to delve into every single process known to man—bronze-casting, plaster-mold-making, ceramics, and raku-firing,” she says. “I started working with pieces of steel and bronze that I would find in the studio—random ...

“I didn’t really think of jewelry as something that was going to become my life’s work—I was just doing it for fun,” Anna Sheffield explains. While studying fine-art sculpture at the Academy of Art in San Francisco, Anna dabbled in small pieces as she focused on big ones. “I started to delve into every single process known to man—bronze-casting, plaster-mold-making, ceramics, and raku-firing,” she says. “I started working with pieces of steel and bronze that I would find in the studio—random chunks cut off from bigger pieces.”

Those metal scraps became the basis for not one but two jewelry lines: After finding success with her first, Bing Bang—a fun-loving collection that incorporates smiley faces, lightning bolts, and peace signs—Anna began itching to work with precious metals and stones. “The question about getting involved with the diamond industry was figuring out how to do it in a sustainable fashion,” she says. “Gold and diamonds can’t be manufactured—you have to dig them out of the ground. So there’s a lot of responsibility there.” After finding the right “diamond guy” (yes, that’s a real profession), Anna established her point of view in the fine-jewelry realm—think double-band engagement rings set with blackened quartz and talon-like earrings with black diamond spines. “I design pieces for both sides of my own personality: the moments when I feel almost docile and those days when I feel ferocious,” the New Mexico native notes. Added bonus of owning one of Anna’s creations: Your grandkids will know you were a total badass.
