Anne Bliss' Profile

About

I put a lot of thought into each component. Jump rings are oval & made of heavy wire. Covered crimps hide and protect the Soft Touch jewelry wire. I use a butterfly toggle on bracelets because it's easy to do yourself, but is more secure than a bar toggle. Necklaces have a strong lobster clasp. All necklaces & bracelets include a Bliss logo tag at the clasp - be reminded to think blissful thoughts whenever you look at it.

All jewelry comes in a soft black velvet pouch that can be used to store your jewelry, and even as a travel pouch.

Beading is my passion - every piece is crafted with blissful energy.

While helping a friend start her jewelry business eight years ago, I discovered the joy of using fine motor skills to create beautiful objects. I began by making bookmarks and wine charms out of memory wire, pearls, semi-precious stones. Then Buffalo Fleece and Outerwear, a local store in Buffalo’s Elmwood Village, asked me to create Buffalo-themed key chains and zipper pulls and then jewelry for their store. Through this project, I discovered my true passion, and Bliss Designs was born.
Since that time, I have created hundreds of pieces of jewelry --- from classy freshwater pearl necklaces to funky earrings. Through my Buffalo, New York-based business, I have the opportunity to help customers discover beaded jewelry that expresses their personality and tastes. I also help them select individual, custom-made gifts, such as bridal party sets. This is a true joy.
You can find my jewelry at several gift shops, such as The Museum Store in the Burchfield Penney Art Center at Buffalo State College, September’s Bride in Holland, MI, Enjoy the Journey Art Gallery in West Seneca, NY and local art shows. You also can contact me for custom pieces. If I have the materials on hand, I could complete custom work within a week, within 2 if I need to order specific size or color pearls.
I have served on the board of Artists in Buffalo Inc since 2008, am a partner with Urban Artisans since 2008, and with Bliss & Bejewelled Benefit Bazaars since 2004. We’ve raised more than $53,000 for local charities, such as Gilda’s Club WNY, Child & Family Services Haven House, Hospice Buffalo and more.
I believe jewelry is more than an accessory; it’s an expression of a woman’s inner self. Let me help you find yours with my beautiful beaded creations.
