An independent jewelry designer and metalsmith for over 15 years, Anne has honed her skills in working in silver and gold along with other alternative materials. Trained in school as a sculptor and printmaker, she fell in love with working in metals and spent years teaching herself the trade of a goldsmith. She has been involved in the Columbus art community participating in and organizing art events for over a decade.
Working exclusively in recycled precious metals, Anne loves to work on custom jewelry and strives to make something specifically suited to you that will last a lifetime.
Anne earned her BFA from Columbus College of Art & Design and has five years experience teaching undergraduate and continuing professional studies courses in Jewelry and Small Metals at CCAD. Her jewelry studio is located in the Grandview Heights neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio. In 2014 she opened The Smithery: artist made goods, a studio and store focused on showcasing contemporary jewelry and modern craft, with jewelry artist Jen Townsend. She has been making and selling her work full time, and online since 2007. Holman's jewelry has been published in numerous print and digital publications.
The studio is dedicated to working sustainably as much as possible;
-sourcing raw precious metals from a refiner of 100% certified recycled and conflict free sources. Recycled silver and gold is indistinguishable in quality and appearance from newly mined metals.
-utilizing reclaimed materials and sourcing fair trade gems.
-recycling all precious metal scrap and dust.
-eliminating chemicals with safer alternatives to decrease the environmental impact.
