Ana Martins is the Founder and Creative Director of Filienna.
Filienna merges the craft of filigree jewelry making with the art of henna design.
The Latin word Filia means daughter; but to Ana, it means the daughter of Filigrana – an ancient, lost tradition of jewelry-making technique. The art of Filigrana weaves together lace-like metal threads into an intricate, swirling tapestry of jewelry.
Body art painting, most commonly known as Henna, was originated in Egyptian times as a form of art and expression.
