I’ve always been an artist and creator especially when it came to fashion and accessories. Raised in NYC by artist parents, my creativity was encouraged and nurtured. In high school I was known for wild outfit collaborations of vintage and self produced designs. In college I studied fine art at The School of Visual Art in New York, and developed a strong love of drawing, which would later tie in with my unique jewelry style.
Anne Woodman Jewelry Design was born while figuring out who I was as an artist. I started creating jewelry for myself and friends. After a lot of playing, I discovered a love of line drawing with wire. Inspired by doodling simple shapes in a free form style, the first signature designs were born, including the happy flower.
Friends and family confirmed my whimsical style had appeal, but I wanted to see what the public thought, so in true NYC fashion I set up a folding table on Prince Street in Soho to be critiqued by the masses. I sold out early on the first day, and knew I had a product.
From there I worked my way into Henri Bendel, Bloomingdales and boutiques across the country and abroad.
I moved to Maine full time in 2013 after spending summers here my whole life and creating a brick and mortar location in Bar Harbor called “the shop”.
“the shop” became a year round business and Anne Woodman Jewelry Design HQ until COVID forced me to close permanently in the spring of 2020.
Since then, I have been focusing on my online presence. I also added life coaching to my offerings! My jewelry journey as an artist and small business owner has taught me so much about life and provided so much personal growth that I feel like it’s time to give back and share some of that wisdom. So, during the lockdown of 2020-2021, I went back to school and got certified as a trained Co-Active coach. My clients are mostly creative business owners themselves and I get so much joy from working with them.
My coaching packages include a jewelry gift at the end of our time together that is meant to remind my client of what they’ve discovered about themselves and where they are going.
My jewelry has always been inspired by the beauty and calm of nature, combined with the personalities and styles of customers and friends as well as my passion for art and fashion. Now I also get inspiration from the revelations that come through working with my amazing clients.
I see a bright future for my jewelry line as I create a new collection inspired by these meaningful life coaching discoveries.
