This week we're delighted to speak with Anna Marrone in our feature on Inspirational Creative Women. Anna is a Melbourne-based jeweller and illustrator. Her hyper-realistic illustration style and graphic design background naturally evolved to an interest in jewellery and engraving. In 2019, Anna attended Metallo Nobile in Florence, learning the craft of engraving under 'i maestri' Riccardo and Mayumi. Her beautiful hand made jewellery crafted from precious metals and gems features engravings with a playful sensibility. Anna has created a special collection of jewellery for Aestas, launching today in store and online. Discover this delightful collection here and read our inspiring chat with Anna on the Journal below.
Tell us about your professional journey - highlights, learnings, mentors.
Engraving features heavily in many of Anna's designs.
What are you working on right now, personally and professionally?
Professionally, I'm working on developing my own style and aesthetic creating a range for Aestas has been wonderful for that. Personally, I'm working on cooking more.
Favourite travel experience/s?
A recent trip to Italy with an architect friend took me to a bunch of truly inspirational sites (Tomba Brion, Villa Necchi, Lingotto/ Fiat Complex) that I might have otherwise missed and I'm forever grateful.
