Annachich Jewelry is on a mission to preserve and celebrate historic details by turning them into well-crafted, fashion-forward jewels. Each collection represents a modern interpretation of an interior design style, or a real building’s architectural elements. Every piece is handcrafted in the USA in our Bay Area studio.
We are passionate about ethical manufacturing and locally source materials whenever possible. Our fine jewelry is created from recycled silver and gold; our fashion jewelry is plated using an environmentally friendly process.
Each Annachich piece starts as an image of an architectural element. The elements are digitally rendered, 3d printed then locally cast into various metals. Our original designs are then handcrafted into finished jewelry in our San Jose, CA workshop.
The line has been featured in the SF Chronicle Style Section, Ladies Home Journal, Accessories Magazine, Seventeen Magazine, Harper's Bazaar Singapore, Family Circle, New York Post, New York Daily News, Where SF, Racked, to name a few.
Before dreaming up Annachich, I was a graphic designer with an obvious void in my world. Filled with a desire to create objects that were tangible, I began laser cutting acrylic jewelry from images in architectural books. I fell in love with creating beautiful, meaningful pieces for modern women.
In 2012, this passion led me to the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts to learn professional metalsmithing. During my time in the Jewelry Technician program, I was chosen to intern under Master Goldsmith, Alan Revere. The following year, the Annachich.com e-commerce store was launched with my first full collection of jewelry inspired by architecture.
Annachich is named after my grandmother, my early-life artistic inspiration. It looks like I incorporated the word "chic" into her maiden name, but that's just a happy coincidence. All of the letters are pronounced just like they appear: Ann-a-chi-ch. More on the name here.
If you have any questions about my architectural inspiration and process, or if you just want to say "Hi!" please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow along with my personal life on Instagram and Pinterest.
