Ana Cavalheiro was born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal. A career in international and Private banking took her to Switzerland and to France. While living in Paris, a goldsmith class opened Ana’s eyes to a brand new world of creation and she changed her career to become a goldsmith.
The inspiration for Ana’s designs arises from her cultural background and traveling experiences. The pieces are modern interpretations of details found in centuries old monuments and buildings that are transposed to smaller objects of wearable art. For Ana, the process of jewelry making is a meticulous one, where special details are embedded in the piece to tell the wearer their personal, intimate story.
