ann jenkins jewelry
Ann began working as a studio jeweler in 1980 first doing local fairs in her native Louisville, Kentucky.
By 1983 she exhibited her work at the Baltimore American Craft Council Show. Since that time her work has
appeared in galleries across the United States in invitational shows and as a represented artist. An interest
in non-traditional forms of jewelry and sculpture led Ann and her sculptor husband, William Keith, to design
pieces incorporating paint, markers and color prints on formed metal and later, jewelry collages
made of aluminum soda can imagery combined with carved acrylic. Ann's current work combines this
non-traditional bent with her long held interest in the natural world. The resulting pieces are spare, direct
and center attention on found natural objects. Ann and Bill live in Bar Harbor, Maine near Acadia National Park
and welcome visitors to their studio and garden.
