Anne Baxter began making jewelry in 2006. She has always had an interest in making jewelry, but only decided to pursue it fairly recently. In her sophomore year of art school, she wandered around New York City in the Garment District’s wholesale bead distributor area, trying to convince them to sell her a few beads under the table (with some success). She strung and knotted them onto satin cord, and that was the first jewelry she made. Her primary influences are René Lalique, Georg Jensen and East Indian jewelry. She derives her biggest inspiration from nature, her fellow jewelry artists at the San Francisco Women Artists Gallery and her clients.
Anne earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The Cooper Union for Advancement of Science and Art. Her work can be viewed at her Etsy shop, annesjewelry123.etsy.com.
