From the team at Fragment Labs (a Downtown Raleigh web studio):

This months First Friday brings a different kind of art to Fragment. Jaclyn Anthony Designs joins us with a unique look and feel of custom handmade jewelry.

Jaclyn Anthony Design’s inspiration is derived directly from Jaclyn’s childhood sensations. From an early age she was fascinated with her father’s draft and design of architectural structures, and learned from his attention to detail. Her Grandfather’s bar-based business bartering and world travels allowed Jaclyn to see jewelry design from diverse populations. “From an early age, the overwhelming awe I felt when wearing my mother’s jewelry consumed me with emotion, this is what I want for my wearers.”

Jaclyn studied textile composition and period dress in college. She has worked with various mediums before focusing her efforts in jewelry design. Jaclyn’s collections combine mechanical inspirations and a lust for nature through forged metals and hints of natural shapes and forms with accents of fabrics and various mediums.
