Ana Lepsch holds a degree in Design from the Istituto Europeo di Design (IED, European Design Institute), a world-class Italian design school with a unit in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Lepsch, who had previously sought a degree in Law, felt the need to attend the IED course to strengthen her creative skills after she decided to make pieces of jewelry out of her drawings. At the IED she studied with João Gilberto Mazzoti and Fernando Jorge. In 2008, after graduating, Ana set up her brand and opened a studio in Sao Paulo.

She has shown her work several times: in 2011 at the group exhibition of Brazilian designers held by the Brazilian Embassy in Berlin, curated by gemologist Mariana Magtaz; at the 2012 New York Design Week; at the Brazilian section in Wanted Design, an event that brought together big names from different segments of both Brazilian and international design; at Joya – Contemporary Jewelly Week, in Barcelona, which was later taken to the Alchimia school in Florence by invitation of curator Miriam Mirna Korolkovas.
