About An Dao
An Dao's life is a testament of survival, courage and inspiration. She arrived to Boston, Massachusetts from Vietnam as a young girl, escaping by boat with her family from that war-torn country. An received her degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York in 1989 and worked in the fashion and cosmetic industries for the next 20 years.
In the past decade, An has come through several open heart surgeries and fought breast cancer. She has drawn from these experiences and expresses her strength and resilience in the creation of her unique pieces of jewelry.
An Dao Jewelry was formed in 2009 with the purpose of bringing creative hand made fine jewelry to today’s buyer. All pieces are individually designed using a variety of metals and semi precious stones. With an appreciation of Nature nurtured in Vietnam and her urban upbringing in the US, An creates unique pieces blending the cultures reflecting a natural flow of nature and sophistication.
An Dao is the sole creator and designer of An Dao Jewelry and currently owns and operates her own work studio in Windermere, Fl. Her work is available online as well as in several well-known galleries in the country.
