Anna Bánkuti, the designer behind Anzu jewelry, was born in 1991 in Budapest, Hungary to photographer and art journalist parents. Growing up in an art filled environment inspired her to become an artist. In 2009 Anna moved to Stuttgart, Germany in order to study fine art at the Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design. As an art student she wanted to present her work in a way that enabled more people to see and enjoy it, rather than to have it be confined in a four walled frame. She found the answer in the combination of art and design, where her work now shines inside of gold and silver jewels.
