Anna is a Russian born artist/designer living and working in London.
Anna's work is heavily influenced by her rich cultural heritage along with her passion for history, fashion, music, theatre, politics, philosophy, folk art, the surreal. Her work is intricately detailed layers of symbols connecting, reflecting and interweaving, words and phrases float and disappear. She weaves tales into her jewellery, which she describes as ‘wearable artworks’, the original meaning merges with the life and thoughts of the wearer, changing significance and taking a new shape.
Anna studied fine art at Goldsmiths university, she exhibits widely in London and besides jewellery and hats, gained recognition for her performance art, drawings, costumes and makeup work. She worked for many designers and artists including Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, Andrew Logan, Tatty Devine, among others. Using recycled, found and self-made materials she pushes the boundaries of contemporary jewellery. Anna Kompaniets creates exquisitely hand crafted one-off pieces and made-to-order items, objects of desire and contemplation. She will be happy to create couture pieces for your special requests- weddings, proms, parties, pieces using your own special objects and mementos.
