Toronto – Anne Sportun began experimenting with jewelery 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 at the age of sixteen, she had no idea that she had taken the first steps of her professional career. Nor did she know that years later she would make the conscious decision to defer academic studies in Archaeology to enroll in a three year Jewellry Arts Program. Anne’s passion for jewelery making set her on the path that would lead her to where she is today.
While working part-time at an architect’s office, Anne met Barbara Kelly, who fell in love with Anne’s work. The two young women became fast friends. Together they began developing Experimetal. Barb represented the work at international trade shows while Anne devoted her time to the studio. It was inevitable that the two friends would become business partners.
