Local jewel artist brings a little extra sparkle and shine to Katipunan

Fresh from her New York exhibit, founder and jewel artisan Anne Carly Abad of Art in Jewels is back in the Philippines for a cozy little show for Valentine’s at The Arton Strip by Rockwell this February 13-16.

There’s nothing quite as exciting or as personal as customized jewelry. Whether you want to mark a milestone or use it as a form of self-expression, fine jewelry is an investment. From stone selection, consultation, design sketching, and finally, the finished product— Art in Jewels delivers flawlessly on all fronts.

Being a writer at heart, Anne’s aesthetic revolves around her poetics and the organic inspiration she draws from nature and the gems themselves. Precious and semi-precious gemstones like sapphires, spinels, garnets, and diamonds feature in much of her creations. She works closely with her partner gemologists and gem cutters to source exceptional gems from all over the world, enthroning them in flowing pieces of finely-crafted gold.

Anne has a unique background as an artist, fictionist, and poet, and has garnered multiple award nominations in international poetry awarding bodies, and was ultimately awarded the Poet of the Year in the 2017 Nick Joaquin Literary Awards. She came back to her first love, the visual arts, by using gemstones and metal as her medium with the help of skilled FIlipino jewelry artisans.
