Then 23, Anaconda’s founder Monica Rossi had a business buying and selling ethnic jewellery, textiles, and other objects that she amassed through her many travels. She threw into that mix some silver jewellery of her own design, which she made by hand at her home in Italy and while traveling. Soon, she found herself on a new path that has led her to great acclaim as a jewellery designer.
Eager to better understand fabrication techniques, she began watching a master goldsmith at work. Thus, she learned the tricks of the trade, including stone cutting and carving, without formally studying jewellery-making.
Monica uses only the finest metals and gemstones. Her signature gold is a very specific shade of 19K light yellow that borders on champagne.
