Artist Spotlight: Anne Vaughan Designs

Artist Anne Vaughan leads a small team of makers in creating innovative new layered jewelry collections centered around creative color palettes. Each collage is inspired by textiles, fabrics, and the natural world, and made in her rural Virginia studio. Using a mix of natural stone beads, Swarovski crystals, sterling silver and 14kt gold fill metals, these pieces are the essence of summer! Peruse the full selection of necklaces, bracelets, and earrings here in our Anne Vaughan Collection.
