Anne Waddell Toohey Jewelry Design
Anne Waddell Toohey has been designing and creating handmade jewelry from her home studio in Excelsior, MN since 2018, but the journey to begin Anne Waddell Designs has been a lifetime in the making. From beading necklaces in junior high, being voted “Most Likely to Become an Artist” in high school, to earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Metalsmithing and Jewelry Design from The University of Kansas, Anne has always been passionate about the craft of jewelry making.
She constantly draws inspiration from the world around her whether it’s from the highs and the lows of her own life experiences, from her cherished family and friends or from the perfectly imperfect patterns in nature. The collection includes pieces made of sterling silver, gold, precious and semi-precious gemstones, intention and love. Creating jewelry that tells your story and represents your style and aesthetic is Anne’s favorite part of the design process. When Anne is not making jewelry she is training for her first marathon or spending time with her husband Tim and two daughters, Caitlin and Charlotte.
