Everything Ann made received rave reviews from her friends, family and coworkers. She realized she was onto something.
She uses her own original photography and vintage family photos. This stained glass window detail is one of Ann's photographs from a local church.
Ann's considers her beading style to be simple and classic.
The transition from photographer to jewelry designer was not effortless. Ann said it took her about a year to perfect her resin technique.
At one point she called the resin company directly because she had so many unanswered questions.
Ann finds herself in this space about three days a week.
Her resin technique requires that the humidity level in her studio be 50 percent or less, so winter is her best production season.
