Inspired by natural elements and her South Western Virginia heritage, Annie uses many techniques to create interesting and unique wearable art. In the studio she begins her creations with precious metal clay. Incorporating hand-built and sculptural elements, she manipulates and forms the silver clay into original one-of-a-kind pieces of fine silver jewelry. Annie participates in juried art shows where she has won awards for her craft including first place in jewelry. Her work is also offered at selective galleries and boutiques. Annie has been working full time in precious metal clay for over 5 years and studied under PMC Connection Senior Instructor Teva Chaffin and has taught and participated in numerous workshops and classes.
