Ann Prey Custom Designed Jewelry

ann prey custom jewelry  designed to suit jewelry

I have a passion for beads, the pastime passion turned into a business after someone taught me how to bead a few years ago. I took many more classes and I was hooked…I now do metalsmith work and enameling.

I am drawn to stones that evoke sea, sky and sand. I turn to nature for inspiration. I live on a lake and my studio is on a lake, so I design with the lakes in view. We travel the world and I find myself rambling through markets throughout the world choosing beads. I always share with my customers the origins of their piece.

My creations are sold at galleries and shows. I accept special orders, weddings and repurpose vintage pieces. I have created treasures for family members from just one of Grandma’s necklaces.

I have purchased beads at a shop where Janis Joplin and Cher shopped. I chose pearls in Tahiti. I have also sought out beads in Italy, Croatia, Guatemala, Mexico, Portugal, Belgium, Morocco, Turkey, France, Costa Rica, South Africa, Thailand,I have traveled to all 7 continents in the world. Alaska and New York City and many other cities in the United States. I support local bead shops as well.

I am married to my soul mate. I have one child, a daughter. She is a chemist and lives in Milwaukee, WI. My husband has three children. Kristin, Mark, & Sandi. We have 5 adorable grand children.

My career is a lifetime in the dental profession as a hygienist and educator. I hold a B.S. from Marquette University and a Master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin Stout.
I hold a white belt in the NIA dance technique, practice & teach yoga, an avid bicycle rider, scuba diver, kayak and enjoy the benefits of essential oils.

I am a member of Wisconsin Designer Craft Council, Arts Wisconsin &Wisconsin Alliance of Artist and Craftspeople & John Michael Kohler Art Center

Enjoy my creations and accept my gratitude."
