Annie O'Kane's Profile
Thanks for your interest in my jewelry!
I remember hammering nails into scrap wood at my Dad's basement workbench when I was about five years old. All of the old hand tools and materials seemed so magical to me and still do.
I grew up in Massachusetts and moved to Boston where I enrolled in jewelry/silver smithing classes and also worked as a furniture maker. I loved all the tools and the process of woodworking and silver smithing and still do.
I moved to Ann Arbor where I earned a BFA with concentration in drawing, painting and sculpture, and MA in education. After many years of teaching, I felt the pull to return to my workbench full time. I enjoyed participating as a vendor at local farmers and artisans markets and festivals in Michigan…
