Aneta Zae jewelry started as a realization of the ever thirsty feeling of creating art that would be deep, emotional and tangible. Art to wear that is relatable and that people would love. The use of hands and heart in the process would be the ultimate necessary conditions.
Aneta Zae creates jewelry that is timeless, bold, playful and other worldly at the same time. Limited editions, one-of-a-kind and re-styling old pieces into new and exciting creations is the passion she thrives on.
The fascination with nature, gemstones and the properties of metals is what sparks the enthusiastic process of creation. In the end, there’s nothing better than creating by heart, desire and without boundaries.
All jewelry is handmade.
Aneta was born in the Czech Republic (formerly known as Czechoslovakia). She studied psychology and philosophy at Charles University in Prague but left to travel the world and to learn English. She decided to go to Australia for a few months and wound up living there for 7 years . With a desire to study design she moved to New York City.
In 2015 she felt an incredible urge to create something tangible with her hands and with the encouragement of a good friend, she chose to take a course in jewelry making. Her very first studio was Jewelry Arts Inc in the heart of Manhattan where she was offered an apprenticeship and learned metal smithing. She wanted to learn wax carving and found another studio.
