Anne Holman's Profile

About

My jewelry design is infused with an appreciation of time that has passed and a nod of appreciation to my family history. Inspired by antiques, the decorative arts, and the documentation of a different time and place. There is a beautiful history within these pieces of the past. I desire to honor them by giving them a new life in a fresh modern design.

Some of the work has evolved as an extension of my gallery works that often include geographical references, maps, and jewelry-like elements to create sculptural and installation pieces.

Maps are not only my life's passion, but also in my blood. My great grandmother, who is also my namesake, was a single young independent working woman in the late 19th and early 20th century, which was not the norm for ladies at that time.

My jewelry design is infused with an appreciation of time that has passed and a nod of appreciation to my family history. Inspired by antiques, the decorative arts, and the documentation of a different time and place. There is a beautiful history within these pieces of the past.

Some of the work has evolved as an extension of my gallery works that often include geographical references, maps, and jewelry-like elements to create sculptural and installation pieces.

Maps are not only my life's passion, but also in my blood. My great grandmother, who is also my namesake, was a single young independent working woman in the late 19th and early 20th century, which was not the norm for ladies at that time. She was employed away from her hometown, as an assistant to a cartographer, in Washington DC. Although I never had the opportunity to meet her, her life and story continue to be a huge inspiration to me.

I work almost exclusively in sterling silver and I do all of the metalsmithing in my work using little more than my two hands, hand tools and a torch. Each item I make is given individual attention and extreme care beginning to end. The quality you will find is evident in the details.

{GREEN}
I am dedicated to greening my studio as much as possible to make it more eco-friendly and sustainable. I source a majority of my materials from a refiner of 100% certified recycled precious metals.

I utilize recycled and re-claimed materials in my work whenever possible.

Every purchase is packaged with love in a complimentary 100% recycled gift box with paper ribbon, a small gift bag and shipped in 'cradle to cradle' certified packaging. My gratitude to the USPS for providing this environmentally-intelligent option!
