Artist Bio: Hi, friends! I’m Anna, the metalsmith behind Sable Stone - a self-taught, one woman run business based in northwest Ohio, where a love for rocks, fairytales, flora + fauna, and all things outdoors was cultivated early on. After completing a degree in Soil Science and a few stints on sustainable farms across the country I found myself in Montana, where I worked as a hydrological/fisheries/soils technician for 5 years. The off seasons were dedicated to learning how to work with metal.
