CV / Bio
Being born and raised and still residing in Southwest Florida, I am obviously and whole-heartedly in love with this area. And this area is what gives me great inspiration for the jewelry we do. Rolling waves, intense sunsets, incredible wildlife, sea life… how can you not be inspired! Not to mention having kids that love being on the water and watching them experience nature is in it self amazingly inspirational.
I started making jewelry as an apprentice for a local award-winning jeweler, Mark Loren when I was still in high school and had the great privilege of working with him for a total of 15 years. In that time span I also won four highly coveted National Design Awards.
After my second child was born I decided it was time to do my own thing and make the jewelry that I wanted to do. So in 2006, Anisa Stewart Designs was launched. In the following years the company has grown wonderfully adding new clients constantly and understanding that customer service is the most crucial part of running a business .
My Mother and I make all the jewelry with the lost wax casting method, which means I start off carving an original wax model that I then mold, burn out the wax and then pour molten metal into the void. This process allows us to get great detail into the piece. I believe jewelry should be worn daily and for a lifetime, so when I make a piece, I keep that in mind making sure it is extremely comfortable and of substantial weight!
Jewelry is a great way to express yourself. Let’s live life together in a Big, Bold, Funky and Fun way through great jewelry…I’ll make it and you wear it!
