The jewelry of Annie Fensterstock deftly blends a mastery of ancient goldsmithing techniques with dynamic contemporary design. Annie’s jewelry is entirely hand fabricated in the traditional materials of 18 karat gold, 22 karat gold and platinum. Her works range from simple hammered wedding bands and unusual diamond engagement rings to intricately hand-woven necklaces with jewel-encrusted pendants.
Annie combines innovation with tradition to create her jeweled ornaments. She employs techniques such as chain weaving and granulation in the style and manner of ancient artisans. Yet while she uses techniques dating back centuries, her personal style has a distinctly modern feel. “I am continually inspired by the world around me. Through my work, I seek to re-imagine and reinterpret the past, fusing the beauty of the ancient with the vitality and the rhythm of the modern world.”
Annie celebrates the intrinsic radiance of precious metals and gemstones, favoring unusual colored diamonds like yellows and oranges and fancy sapphires ranging from hot pinks to moody blues. With these vibrant colors and her bold aesthetic, she creates exquisite works of art that are serious and playful at once.
