Be Inspired, Be confident, Be your natural self.
You get inspired by your travels and other strong women, you want to see more, meet new people and keep growing. When you’re not out socialising you appreciate nature, your family and your time. As you’ve gotten older you’re more comfortable in your own skin, you focus on both your mind and body, understanding more about yourself and what makes you shine from the inside out.
“Anthea Cooper jewellery is designed for you, the confident woman who appreciate’s travel and nature, making the most life has to offer. My inspiration comes from nature and my Indian background which you will find is the essence of all my pieces. A lover of semi precious stones, I showcase these in my design’s and hope it reminds you of your own unique and natural beauty.”
Jewellery is a great way to show people what you are about; it makes an outfit so much more personal. I grew up with my Mum always wearing and sharing her treasured pieces with me. I’m passionate about creating contemporary jewellery that other people can treasure too. Anthea Cooper was created not only for my love of jewellery but other inspiring women following their passions; I decided to follow mine! I hope I can inspire you to follow yours.

About Anthea Cooper
Born in Dubai to Anglo Indian parents and migrating to Australia in 1985 Anthea has always enjoyed being creative. As a child she was into all forms of arts and crafts and nature. One piece that comes to mind was when she made her own flower pressing kit using wood and bits and pieces lying around in her Dad’s tool shed. In high school her favorite subjects were art and graphic design. At university she used her creative streak to study advertising where she eventually majored in marketing.
It wasn’t until she travelled and lived around the world she realised her true passion was design. After studying jewellery design at Gemlab, Philippines, a jewelry and gemology training center she had the tools she needed to help her create her first collection.
