Ann Chikahisa, a long-time Click! fave, is joining us for our Jewelry Invitational + Small Works Show, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to show off her work.
We have a collection of Ann's organically shaped and textured pieces year-round, and she's brought new pieces from her Talisman collection for the show! These necklaces are meant to help the wearer gain confidence and clarity in their intentions through their daily life. The collection includes talismans for strength, reflection, hope, and healing, we can't think of a more perfect gift for a loved one or to get yourself to guide you through this holiday season.
Her necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets are available to shop in-store with select pieces online.
How would you describe what you make?
I make bold, modern and sophisticated jewelry.
What have you been up to since the last time you were at Click?
I’ve been creating some new rings and expanding my Talisman collection.
Has there been a big “oops” moment you’ve had while creating? What was the outcome?
I was playing with some wax and melted it. It ended up being my reflection talisman. I love how it turned out!
What is your most important artist tool? Is there something you can’t live without in your studio?
I think the most important tool is my wax. It’s the foundation of all my creations. This is where the design process begins.
Can you tell us about your favorite piece in the collection?
Oh! That’s like picking your favorite child.. But right now I’m loving my newest ring collection, the meditation rings. They’ll be coming out very soon.
What’s the best piece of advice that you’ve been given or that you would give to other artists?
Believe. You can make a living as an artist!
