Silver and Resin Jewelry
From an early age I have been fascinated by Classical and Modern art. I also discovered in my teens that I love to create jewelry, and began honing my skills to become proficient in silversmithing. But it wasn’t until I began working with Carol Baretz of Ann Carol Designs in 1999 that I learned to marry my two favorite things into one. Carol introduced me to resin enamel colors, and with vast experimentation, we began to fabricate unique pieces of jewelry.
Using sterling silver as a canvas, the resins are hand painted and then allowed to delicately air dry. Meticulous care is taken to ensure that every detail of Ann Carol Designs jewelry is special and something to be treasured. Some pieces may take many cycles to fuse the colors into an intricately beautiful piece of wearable art.
Ann Carol Designs Studio has since moved from Nyack, NY to Bound Brook, NJ, but the tradition of high creative standards continues.
