An austere and academic upbringing led Anissa to take up studies in engineering and computer science, but after three years, Anissa was struck with an ennui that led her ever-present rebellious temperament to adopt a different approach; she threw herself hands-first into jewellery studies at Central Saint Martins and in London’s revered jewellery district, Hatton Garden. This bold move culminated in an impressive launch in 2016, in what has been a tourbillon of a year. Anissa’s abiding ambition is to create jewellery that reflects the generation of successful, powerful and funny women that she sees all around her. It’s this ambition and academic drive that has led to designs which have caught the eye of buyers at leading retailers across the globe.
