From protection of roman soldiers to abundance
Sterling silver , Tiger's Eye, afghani hammered silver beads, black and brown Agate. Design: Christine v. Schönburg Apart from its beautiful golden colour, I specially like Tigers Eye because it is an excellent stone for increasing the power of personal will. It helps us acquire abundance and wealth and enhances the stability and balance that lead to maintaining the acquired wealth. It's known as the stone of grounding, abundance and protection and has been used since the Roman soldiers, for protection and clarity during battles. You can read more about the properties of this powerful stone here
Jewellery Designer and Goldsmith.
I've started my career in São Paulo, Brazil, learning jewellery making with Bobby Stepanenko, then trained graphic design, gemology and chasing at Le Arte Orafe, in Florence, Italy, where I gained technical experience from local known jewellers and also had a workshop with Caroline Khuen von Belasi, offering customized art pieces. During my 8 years in London I continued creating jewellery and had my work shown in Italy, United Kingdom, Austria, France, Spain and Germany. After 13 years abroad, I set up my workshop of São Paulo, and currently offer consultancy and unique pieces for my local as well as international clientele. From March 2011 my new accessories line" Anna B." is available on-line @ http://annab.tanlup.com .
