Throughout the years I’ve had so many proud “Anne Koplik” moments, and in particular something that has always thrilled me is seeing our jewelry in a store…beautifully displayed and thinking “I helped make that happen.”
Recently, one of our uber talented artisans, Becca, visited the Smithsonian’s American History Museum in Washington DC. In their main store she found jewelry that she has helped to hand craft. I was so happy that she had that experience…to see something she helped to create offered for sale in one of the most prestigious museums in the world. That’s something that doesn’t happen every day…it feels truly amazing…and it is really really cool.
We’ve been selling jewelry in the gift shop at the American History Museum as well as their Castle, and their catalog, for several years now. We compiled a collection that we call “Jewelry Through the Ages”, which offers a selection of jewelry from 4 different time periods: Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Edwardian and Victorian. What’s so nice about the selection is that although the jewelry resonates from these different time periods, all the pieces are meant to be worn today, by the modern woman. I guess the old adage “what is old is new” really applies here, as well as the idea that some things never go out of style!
Because we have such an extensive line of vintage-inspired, fashion jewelry, museum stores are a natural “fit” for us. Creating styles that are reminiscent of different artistic time periods (sometimes using true vintage “Anne’s Vault” stones), are perfect for any museum who wants their patrons to take home a little piece of their visit with them.
