ABOUT ASA DESIGNS
ASA Designs formally began in 2007 as a creative outlet between Anna, her sister Shawna and her nephew Adrian [ASA]. While their collaboration has since taken different paths, Anna has continued to grow a passionate business dedicated to providing high quality handcrafted jewelry that will last a lifetime.
I'll be honest. I have two lives. I am an archaeologist. I am a jewelry designer...and I love to do both! As an archaeologist, I work closely with the elders and members of a southern California Native American tribe to preserve and protect their traditional places. It is an extremely tasking job, but it is very rewarding when we are able to save a threatened sacred site from the bulldozers. It's an incredible feeling to know that we are preserving the stories of these long-gone ancestors, and creating new stories for the modern generation.
I've always been drawn to people who have led great adventures and I have listened, spellbound, around campfires, in workshops, classrooms, anywhere, anyplace, to anyone who was willing to tell me about their life. My archaeological training honed my listening skills and my fascination grew with people who have a tale to tell. I listened then and I still listen...to their past adventures... to their present successes...and to their future hopes and dreams. I am privileged to witness someone's life and I love to hear and remember their beautiful story.
As a jewelry designer, I want to continue to be a part of those stories, and your story! Jewelry design, just like archaeological story-telling and listening, requires an intentional focus on detail. The details are what I love and I believe that reflects in my pieces. Subtle color choices, selected wire wrapping techniques, the use of natural and semiprecious stones and the choice of materials are what make my pieces unique. And I hope some of these pieces will become a part of your life story.
My friend, I wish for your adventures to be grand and engraved in your memory - and that there is always someone beside you to listen to your stories!
I invite you to browse my designs. Ask questions. Even request a custom piece. Tell me how I can be a part of your story!
