Founded in 2006, Anne Vaughan Designs was created so Anne could find a way to work while doing her first job – being a mom.
Created in the basement of a tiny brick ranch home, Anne began creating one piece of jewelry a day as a side hustle after the birth of her son, Gabe. Soon her husband Aaron was creating displays and traveling with her to shows and teaching himself print and web marketing at night in order to help her. As her collection grew she embraced the idea of layering. Her necklaces are stunning as one and become dramatic statements telling a story when worn in layers. Anne’s choice of materials and her expertise with color make her a stand out in the American handmade jewelry arena.
Tens of thousands of pieces of distinct jewelry later (all handcrafted in her Virginia studio) and dozens of retail locations across the United States, Anne continues to design each individual item with a talented team of makers supporting her work.
