My name is Anja and I’m coming from a small village near Ilirska Bistrica, but I live in Ljubljana for about 13 years now. Since I can remember I am a creative person. I always love finding different ways to express myself. In my free time, I love to read books and play my ukulele. I also love to transform my feelings and emotions into fine art photography, which you can see here: www.anjamatko.com.
But the most important thing is my jewelry brand Neon Angel design. It is my centre, a way to express myself and a way to make other people happy. And that feeling is priceless! It started way back in the year 2012. That’s when I created it. Me and my roommates were talking and I was telling them how I can’t find the right kind of jewelry that I would love to wear and they gave me an idea that I can make it myself. And this is how the journey of Neon Angel began. At first, I was a little lost and I didn’t have the whole idea of the product. I was just making stuff that I loved to wear. It was actually just a hobby back that. But after a few years, I realized that this is what I want to do for a living. Create jewelry, from scratch. In the year 2015, I found the material I really liked – aluminium. I love to create different kind of pieces from it – the more abstract and geometric shapes and simple jewelry with powerful meaning. And this one is actually my favorite. Because I can make a piece of jewelry for my clients that has a special meaning to them and that is really a priceless experience and I really love it.
