Meet the Maker
I’m Anna, a designer, maker and everything else at Anna Calvert Jewellery. But mostly, I’m just a woman with two dogs, a little studio and an unwavering passion for artisanal handcraft.
To keep a long story short, my love affair with jewellery began when I was a young girl with a curious mind. In awe of my nan's bright and bold jewellery box, I could spend hours listening to her stories about each piece, revelling in the pure delight of timeless jewels. Incoming a young Anna, armed with vision, might and some store-bought modelling clay, I had crafted my very first piece of jewellery (which, by the way, my poor mum did actually wear!). Proud and full of excitement, my obsession with handmade jewellery was born.
Fast forward a good few years, I decided to transform my passion into purpose, and gained my BA Honours in Jewellery Design and Silversmithing. Falling in love with the process of turning raw silver into a beautiful masterpiece, I was hooked left, right and centre.
Cue Anna Calvert Jewellery - my personal creative outlet that captures my daily inspirations, simple pleasures and the pure joy of handcraft. Nestled on the edge of Northamptonshire surrounded by rolling hills and wildflowers, my little studio is where the real magic happens. From sketching the first design and melting down raw silver to hammering intricate pieces, every collection is handmade by me, with love, joy and a fair bout of tenacity to create authentic, one-of-a-kind pieces.
Founded on the philosophy of feel-good, my mission is to create everyday wearables for everyday joy. Whether you’re popping out for coffee, picking the kids up from school or taking a woodland walk, each piece has been crafted with the single intention to be loved and lived-in, with ease.
I’m sure you have heard it all before but every time you buy from a small business, they do a happy dance. And it’s true! From the bottom of my heart, I would like to say a big, fat thank you for your support, your love and for taking the time to have a look around.
From me to you, I hope each AC piece brings you heaps of joy and tons of feel-good, everyday.
