Anna Sheffield's work embodies "pretty and hard" such as her training in costume design and welding. Anna Sheffield's namesake line is a collection of handcrafted pieces that extends into the realm of fine jewelry with sterling, gold and precious stones. In 2007 Anna was honored by the CFDA with a nomination for the Swarovski Award for Accessory Design.
