Viva Las Vegas with Anne Sportun

Toronto-based designer Anne Sportun begun her career in jewelry at the young age of 16. She continues to be driven by her belief in the universal language of shape and form, and she looks to nature for her inspiration, translating the subtle beauty of organic symmetry into her work. It should come as no surprise then, that Anne’s advice for staying sane during the jewelry week madness is so poignantly simple–see the sky at least once a day.
