About

Anita ROKs is a jewelry line designed and handcrafted by Anita Park-Rosenbaum

I have had a diverse career as an artist. I began painting when I was nine years old, eventually showing my paintings in a variety of art shows and galleries for a number of years, while operating a graphic design studio fulltime. In 1997, I decided to try my hand at making jewelry, after years of creating designs for a silversmith in Arizona. I took a small jewelry class at my local art center and I was hooked. In order to pursue jewelry design as a career, I attended Revere Academy in San Francisco to perfect my skills. I completed my courses and after spending a few months making jewelry I entered several juried art shows in Ohio. My jewelry designs were a success! After several years in the Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Indiana art show markets, I bought a home in Fairhope, Alabama to escape Ohio's cold weather, and opened my first gallery in 2004, named Analece. In 2005, I opened a bead store in Fairhope, Bayside Beads. My daughter and I operated the shops, teaching classes, and making artisan and fine jewelry for our customers. In December 2013, I decided to close the shops and pursue jewelry making fulltime, selling online and through boutique stores. The shop required a lot of my time, taking away from my jewelry making, which is my first love.

I now show my jewelry in Fairhope at M&F Casuals, a women's clothing and accessory store, and sell wholesale to boutique shops in other parts of the country. I sell online in my retail shops, Anita ROKS, and Bayside Beads by Analece. Catch my jewelry blogs at http://jewelrychatchicks.blogspot.com/
