Before dreaming up Annachich Jewelry, Becky Constantinides was a graphic designer with an obvious void in her world. She wanted to design things that were both meaningful and tangible. Inspired by images in architectural books, Becky began transforming architectural elements into laser cut jewelry in 2010.
After discovering her passion for adorning others with jewelry she'd created, Becky enrolled in the Jewelry Technician program at the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts. During her time at the school, she was chosen to intern under the school's Founder and Master Goldsmith, Alan Revere.
In late 2013, armed with traditional jewelry making skills, Becky released her first full collection of jewelry inspired by architecture.
The line of luxury designer jewelry has since 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, and on numerous other blogs, magazines and websites.

Born and raised in San Diego, Becky has been surrounded by cultural and architectural inspiration in the San Francisco bay area since 2004. She is married to our web developer, Eric Constantinides. They have a spunky papillon with giant ears named Layla.
Annachich Jewelry preserves and celebrates historic architecture by transforming it into awesome wearable art. We are obsessed with ornate details, geometric shapes and repetition. Our jewelry collections are currently inspired by architecture in San Francisco and New York.
Each piece of jewelry begins as an image of an architectural element on a historic building. We digitally render the architectural design then 3d print a model. The models are then cast locally into brass, recycled silver, or recycled 14k gold. Castings are then hand fabricated into finished jewelry in our San Francisco Bay Area workshop.
All of the brass and silver pieces are coated to prevent tarnish with wear.
We are committed to supporting local vendors and vendors with ethical practices through out our supply chain whenever possible.
Our fine jewelry is ethically produced from recycled metals. Our fashion jewelry is plated using an award winning environmentally friendly process.
