At university, Anna studied mathematics to become a teacher, but at some point she realized that she always wanted to do something related to art. How to deal with this desire, she did not know. Once, she came across the newspaper article about the artist, who finished Riga College of Applied Arts, and Anna felt that this was what she needed. She wanted to be engaged in everything at once – from fashion and interior design to ceramics, as a result, she had chosen metal. The relative eternity of this material attracted her. Anna’s first decoration was a simple fine silver ring. One of her friends learned that Anna had just entered the jewellery business, and was interested in metal design, but did not have a slightest idea how to do elementary ring. He invited her to his studio and arranged the first workshop. There, Anna learned how to bend silver, cut, solder, grind and polish.
