Meet Anna Sheffield
Jewelry designer, Anna Sheffield, hails from New Mexico where natural environs and a deep respect for traditional Native American metalwork would lay the foundation for her future. Having lived in both Saudi Arabia and San Francisco, she landed in New York in 2002 and founded her haute costume jewelry line Bing Bang. Her design aesthetic is a culmination of New York's many influences and her divergent interests in art, culture and collected relics of bygone eras.
Sheffield mingles contemporary devices like layered chains with the charm of curious objects and antiquities. Her collections reflect a departure from the traditional devices of jewelry design that are evident in the hand-hewn aesthetic, innovative design, and emphasis on detail. Every piece embodies Sheffield's unique, personal style; chic and individualistic, edgy yet feminine.
A favorite of fashion insiders, Sheffield has collaborated with design luminaries Marc Jacobs and Phillip Lim. Celebrity fans of Anna Sheffield include Cameron Diaz, Julianne Moore, Mandy Moore, Uma Thurman and Whitney Port. In addition, Sheffield was one of three nominees for the 2007 Swarovski CFDA Award for Accessory Design and has collaborated with brands including Cole Haan, Target, and Urban Outfitters. Her collection of modern keepsakes continues to expand, all crafted in her downtown atelier.
