As a retired graphic designer who formerly worked in the corporate world, I am now happy to be using my creativity to design and construct my own collection of contemporary, romantic jewelry.
As a young child, my grandmother and mother taught me to knit. And I knit for many years with fiber. When I discovered an article online about how to knit and crochet jewelry with artist wire, I was hooked!
I love to embellish my pieces with semiprecious stones, pearls, bohemian glass and a variety of beads. I am currently exploring incorporating my own plant based beads and using repurposed materials.
To shop, please visit my collection at https://annrodgersbrown.company.site or drop me an email if you would like a consultation or a custom design.
When creating jewelry, I often strive for a randomness that gives the appearance that surprising little treasures washed ashore accidentally tangled in a glittering net. As well as using glass of varying shapes, colors and sizes, I am inspired by the natural beauty of semiprecious stone and shell chips combined with the luster of pearls.
Nature and the sea have long been a source of inspiration and are often sought after as a retreat to restore calm, revive and strengthen. Many semiprecious stones have also been attributed with properties that are said to do the same. But sometimes simply wearing a favorite piece of jewelry can lift my spirits!
