After spending months looking for the perfect piece of jewellery, I knew what I wanted but I just couldn’t find it at an affordable price. I decided to have a go at making it myself, so several classes and many workshops later I made my own piece. By the time I had finished I had been well and truly bitten by the jewellery making bug, I made some pieces for friends and the rest as they say is history.
In 2009 I founded Annbcrafts and have never looked back. I am passionate about jewellery, whether its designing something new, sourcing materials, buying new tools (especially that) I love pottering around the studio. One of the things that is most important to me though is customer service, whether I am dealing with a query online, having a consultation in the studio or just answering social media messages, I pride myself on providing a personal, friendly service.
“I have purchased several items from the lovely Ann of Annbcrafts and I've always been delighted with them. Ann has a very good eye for placing colours together and for jewellery design, and never disappoints. Recommended 100%. I will be back.“
“Excellent service and beautiful items. Ann is very helpful and will be purchasing again. Would definitely recommend.“
“Beautiful custom-made jewellery and the best customer service ever! I requested 3 items at very short notice and they were not only gorgeous but where Annbcrafts went out of their way to make and deliver them very quickly, without sacrificing quality. Highly recommended!“
“Ann’s jewellery is beautiful. I can always find what I want and often things I didn’t know I wanted! She has custom made several items for me and I have never been disappointed. Would definitely recommend!“
“Always beautiful combinations, made thoughtfully with the person in mind. Ann has an eye for creating such lovely individual pieces, for such reasonable prices. Is also kind enough to donate these bespoke gifts to our charity raffles. Let’s continue to support a gifted lady and her local business. Your friends and loved ones will be happy you did if they receive something created by Ann.“
“I needed something special for a Valentine's day present. Ann incorporated a stone from Venice I had brought back and included me in the design process to ensure I got exactly what I wanted. Ann also did this with very little notice. I couldn't have been happier with the result and my girlfriend was over the moon. Thanks again for the great service.“
“I have bought several pieces from Ann. She makes lovely, individual jewellery with great care. Highly recommended for gifts!“
“I was looking for some jewellery that could incorporate my Sister's Ashes. Obviously this would be a very delicate process and I needed someone who could understand and treat the jewellery with care and consideration as it would be very precious to me. Ann was just wonderful, she was very caring and empathetic, she was so careful and gentle throughout the whole process. The jewellery she produced was just stunning and I have my Sister close to me every day. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ann she is truly amazing.“
“I have several bracelets made by Ann B Crafts and I always get compliments when wearing them. I also have some pretty earrings. They are well made and very pretty , and I would use this company again. My items have been made and posted very quickly too“
“Bought a teardrop pendant and earrings from Ann (commissioned) to replace lost jewellery. Ann is fantastic to deal with and nothing is too much trouble. Would highly recommend.“
