Anni Anni is jewellery of considered design.
So let's start from the beginning shall we....
WHO AM I?
My name is Ann Prendiville-Burgess and I am the creative director of Anni Anni.
I was extremely fortunate to be born to a family who believed you should share the joys of crafting. Every Wednesday, once the school bell rang, I would rush to my Granny's house for my weekly lesson. Here she taught me everything from painting to patchwork, with the all important ice cream floats in between. She was an incredible woman, whose delight in breathing life into old scraps was infectious. It was most definitely her who ignited and encouraged my desire to create.
I began my journey with precious metals in 2007, beginning a traineeship in Baldoyle, which led the way to spending a almost a decade working with one of Irelands leading designers. Here I developed my knowledge, of not only the craft of jewellery making, but also the business side of the trade also.
2016 proved to be a big year of change for me. I realised that that spark, my Granny had ingnited all those moons ago, had gotten buried. So I took a terrifying leap of faith,I spread my wings, and I flew solo......
SO WHO IS ANNI ANNI?
WHERE IS ANNI ANNI MADE?
I am extremely proud to say that Anni Anni is designed and crafted in Ireland. (always under the watchful eye of my faithful working companion and quality controller, Lucy). Using traditional methods, which have been passed down through the centuries, combined with the wonders of modern technologies, I handcraft each piece especially for you. My wish is that your piece of Anni Anni will become a future heirloom for generations to come.
