Since I was a child in Cuba, I have hungered for artistic expression. As a young girl, I would string together shells from the beach for necklaces, and stones from our garden for rings. I realized at an early age that I had a passion for jewelry. In my professional career, I worked in the Diamond District of New York City and then in the fine jewelry department of Bloomingdales.While I gained insights into the desires and dreams of my retail clients, I lacked the satisfaction of creating my own pieces. I have studied in Barcelona, Miami and New York in order to incorporate into my work the distinct sensitivities of the US and Europe and bring the joy of a distinct creative experience to each unique piece that I create. This is the magic of Ana Alomat Designs.
