Hello, welcome to Anni Designs!

I am Anni, and here is my story.

I was at one time an aspiring physicist with a master degree, a project manager in a hi-tech equipment industry. Although I enjoyed these jobs, I always felt that something was missing in the bottom of my heart. The missing piece was art and design, which I found tremendous joy and satisfaction when I see a beautiful piece of art and design. Nothing can compare with it!

In 2004, I took a beading class which opened a gateway to an artist’s journey. Jewelry making is drawing, design, sculpture, and craft, all in one! And it is wearable!!!

Hello, welcome to Anni Designs!

I am Anni, and here is my story.

I was at one time an aspiring physicist with a master degree, a project manager in a hi-tech equipment industry. Although I enjoyed these jobs, I always felt that something was missing in the bottom of my heart. The missing piece was art and design, which I found tremendous joy and satisfaction when I see a beautiful piece of art and design. Nothing can compare with it!

In 2004, I took a beading class which opened a gateway to an artist’s journey. Jewelry making is drawing, design, sculpture, and craft, all in one! And it is wearable!!! Due to my engineering background, my design has to be useful. Jewelry making is the balance between art and being pragmatic, jewelry accessroize our outfit and complete our look. Perfect!

At the beginning, it was just a hobby to release my creativity and compliment my corporate job. I tested my designs at craft fairs and farmers markets. I was overwhelmed by the positive response from the customers. In 2007, I decided to listen to my inner voice to be an artist. Life is too short to regret at the last day of your life that why you never try. Act instantly and laugh unconditionally :)))

After 6 years, Anni Designs has developed into a promising family business. I work with my husband Joe, my sister-in-law Amy, side by side, hand picking every piece of the beads and hand making every piece of the jewelry. We make each piece as if it were a custom order, insuring quality every step of the way. We strive to bring you the most beautiful, original, keepsake jewelry and heirloom creations.

During these 6 years, I also went back to college to receive professional design training. I was blessed to get a part time job to teach a design class at Chaffey College. I love teaching this particular design class, it helps me refine my design philosophy to a broader and deeper level.

The materials used are all natural and eco-friendly. The jewelry is made from semi-precious stones, fresh water pearl, etc. No plastic and synthetic materials are used in our products. Sustainability and environmental awareness is our mission, priority and lifestyle. This Earth is our one and only home.
