With the recent winter storms shutting down transportation across the country, blood donation centers have asked for help from the San Diego Blood Bank. If you are a donor or know of someone who can donate, please help us meet our goal of 30 donations on 2/11/19. This is a great opportunity to help people across the country in a non-financial way. Making an appointment in advance will help us plan for donuts. Make your appointment | Get directions.
We are excited to announce our first visiting artists - Ford Hallam and Bette Barnett! And introducing a new Anneville instructor, Julie Monroe.
January has been busy but delightful so far - what a joy to talk with talented jewelers and metalsmiths from all over the planet, figuring out the schedule and logistics for them to come share their specialized knowledge here at Anneville. Exact dates and registration coming soon, but in the meantime let me introduce you to three amazing artists who will be offering classes or workshops at Anneville this year - Ford Hallam, Bette Barnett and Julie Monroe.
Did you know that we have the 14th century English poet Chaucer (author of the Canterbury Tales) to thank for making Valentine's Day a romantic holiday? Since then it has become an occasion to express love with presents and cards. If you're looking for a unique gift, how about skipping the flowers and giving your crafty loved one something they'll really enjoy - a gift certificate to the new Anneville Jewelry Lab? At our February FNL we'll be offering discounted Lab gift certificates and selected Anneville Studio pendants and rings - and the first 5 customers get a FREE heart-shaped box of chocolates (or a cute bag, if you're not the chocolate type). We'll also have music, nibbles and sips so stop by to see Anne's newest creations and help us celebrate Saint Valentinus! Get directions.
We were thrilled to welcome over 50 guests to celebrate the Anneville Jewelry Lab Grand Opening last night at January's Friday Night Liberty. We saw old friends, made new ones, Anne did jewelry demos and we had a festive, New Year's themed raffle for one of Anne's handmade mokume gane brooches. The lucky winner was Deanna! Thank you so much to our great volunteer helpers Kathy and Diana and to all of you who came out on a cold night to celebrate the achievement of a vision that Anne first had several years ago - that of launching her own jewelry teaching space. Here's to the year ahead, may it be filled with the happy ringing of hammers!
Educator, metalsmith, jeweler, maker of custom mokume gane jewelry and wedding rings.
