Anne Sportun began experimenting with jewellery in the basement of her childhood home where her father, a high school shop instructor, had a workshop full of tools. When Anne delivered her first wholesale order in 1981 at the age of sixteen, she had no idea she had just started something that would later become her professional career. By deferring academic studies in archaeology to enroll in a three year Jewellery Arts Program, Anne followed her passion for jewellery making and consciously embarked on a the path that would lead her to where she is today.

In 2003 Anne was graced with the honour of having the image of her hands on a Canadian $0.65 postage stamp.
