Anna Balkan grew up in the Ukraine, where the culture was gray and resourcefulness was a necessity. "I've never had any preconceived notions of which colors go together. Because I lived in a world that was so drab, I thought all color was beautiful." Anna immigrated to the US as a political refugee in 1992 at the age of 20, alone, unable to speak the language and with barely enough money to survive.
Over a period of time, Anna's trust in herself and her tenacity enabled her to pursue her dream. Today, Anna Balkan Jewelry is a successful, growing business dedicated to the unique woman. Each piece of Anna's jewelry is a reminder to celebrate life and its beautiful moments.
Let the power of color illuminate the power of you.
