Out of the Fires

Who: Anne Malone of CocoandChia
What: Handcrafted Jewelry
Where: Boston Metrowest, MA
Why: Anne has followed the same path that I did as a jeweler...trial by fire.
Working first as an apprentice for many years, and now for a luxury high-end jeweler, she has also become a full-fledged independent jeweler, designing and crafting her own fabulous eco-respectful line using reclaimed metals and natural, recycled and non-conflict gems.
Exquisite workmanship, crisp precise lines, subdued and sophisticated color combinations make her one of my favorite jewelers. Oh yeah, and that kinship that comes only after toiling in the fires of apprenticeship hell. ;)
