Constant student and Maker.
ANNE BULMER BREWER, a lifelong artist whose career also includes decades as a systems engineer, is a relative newcomer to the world of Art Jewelry.
Since 2007 she has been drawn to ancient metalsmithing techniques of Asia and the Mediterranean. Aesthetically and philosophically Anne’s art explores the world of nature and the precepts of “Wabi Sabi.”
Anne’s work is inspired by nature’s “perfect imperfection.” It embraces the spirit of nature and the transformation of precious metal in both and abstract -- and sometimes literal -- expressions of nature.
Anne’s work is characterized by several ancient techniques:
• Keum Boo (Korea),
• Hori and Zougan, in particular, Nanako-Hori (Japan)
• Granulation (Mesopotamia) and
• Etching (early Renaissance Europe).
Anne is passionate about employing ancient techniques while embracing the energy of today’s modern aesthetic to create timeless expressions of nature in jewelry and art.

Oh, Anne. Thank you for you comment. You already made my day even though it is only about 10:00 in the morning now in Japan :)
I am more than welcome to talk about Japanese culture with you with hoping it will help you to get to know more about what you like! So your mom was actually living in Japan ! I think now it is time for you to come to Japan ! I did not really recognize anything good about my own country until I left to the states. Now I love both countries. I mean, I view all countries in the world as a one big community where I want to share the happiness all together ! Thank you again for being my friend here !!

The main event this week has been completing my watch and chain for the ACJ exhibition "Sleight of Hand". The last element to be completed was the fitting of a glass to the 1838 silver watch-case which was the catalyst for the whole piece and I found an incredible place in Kent where, for a very modest fee, a traditional thick, bevelled mineral-glass was cut to fit, polished and fitted. (Anyone else requiring this service should contact "Crystalfit":…See More
