“A Life Devoted to Jewels” Louisville Times Newspaper Article on Annie early in her career was an accurate summary of both that point in time and things to come.
Captivated by the process of transforming hard metal into fluid shapes with hammers and flame while at Interlochen Arts Academy High School – she went on to study her craft with renowned masters in the trade, and holds a Bachelor’s degree in both Art and Business and is a Gemologist with both GIA and ASG Certifications.
After working several years as a designer and bench jeweler for retail stores, Annie established her own jewelry design studio in Louisville creating personal custom jewelry, one of a kind pieces and jewelry collections. In her creations, she skillfully combines old school techniques and cutting edge new technology, with the stellar results delighting her clients.
As her high school instructor first observed so many years ago, “She definitely seems to have a feel for this!”
