Anne comes from an exotic background, her father being Egyptian and her mother Swedish. These influences show in her distinctive style. She trained at Birmingham School of Jewellery, concentrating on advanced diamond mounting. This course was highly technical, and although she knew she would probable never work with diamonds exclusively, she now uses the techniques in a highly creative way. Much of the inspiration that generates her current work, comes from a rich variety of sources. She is particularly interested in cultures which tend to use a lot of pattern and decoration, ancient or modern. As a result of this mix, she endeavours to introduce all these influences into her current work, which includes myriads of repeating patterns etched into silver.
