58. Anna Mixon
At 21 years old, Anna Mixon has quickly risen to the top as Miami's hottest jewelery designer. It was only back in September that we interviewed the model-turned-designer after Paramore's Haley Williams wore one of her piece to the MTV Video Music Awards. Since then, Mixon's jewelry was featured at a Nicole Miller fashion show and plans are underway to launch in several boutiques next year.

Still, Mixon seems very grounded despite her sudden success. When she's not designing, she works alongside Michael Capponi and Jeff Feldman to make sure Haiti isn't forgotten now that all the news cameras have left.

1. List five things that inspire you.

- My parents
- Andy Warhol
- Prevailing
- Haiti
- Innocence of animals

2. What was your last big project?

My last big project was putting together a ten-piece collection for the Nicole Miller show. I was thrilled to be a part of it. The show turned out great and her whole team was incredible. It was an honor seeing my jewelry designs on her dresses.

3. What's your next big project?

I am launching my jewelry into stores in January. So my project is really getting my stuff out there and, of course, to keep designing. Some exiting designs are in the works.  

4. Why do you do what you do?

I do what I do because of my passion for creating the unseen. Designing to me is a blank canvas and I can create something that is completely unique and share that with others.

5. What's something you want Miami to know about you?

Something Miami might not know about me is that I have been helping Haiti. I helped put together Haiti Art Expo with Michael Capponi and Jeff Feldman. We featured Haitian artists and 100 percent of the proceeds went to rebuilding Haiti. Venus Williams, Russell Simmons, and Andre Berto hosted, also Wyclef and G. Love preformed. I have also traveled to Haiti and I am spending Christmas there and delivering over a thousand toys to a camp in Belleville.

What's something you don't want Miami to know about you?

I have seen all of the Twilight movies and enjoyed every minute of them.
