“My inspiration comes from the many antiques my grandparents have collected. I get a great deal of joy out of creating one-of-a-kind, vintage jewelry from nostalgic items like those – items that hold a story and connect me with my past.”

It wasn't until a few years ago, during a Christmas holiday in France, that Anne realized her knack for jewelry making. Her mother taught her the basics and Anne quickly caught on to it. And now that she's back in America, she spends most of her days designing, constructing and selling her goods. While some of her bold designs come to fruition in as little as a day, others require more thought, with Anne taking as much as a few weeks to allow her concepts to marinate. The finished bits of jewelry are sent off with the hopes that they'll act as a unique act of expression for their wearer.
