Becky Hosmer’s affair with jewelry starts back in her college days, when she had the opportunity to travel the world. She was profoundly inspired by the abundance of color and handmade art throughout Asia. After many trips to Nepal, the Himalayas, Cambodia, and Thailand Becky gained interest in the jewelry-making craft.
By the time she made her way to Bali, she was already involved in jewelry and foreign trade. Bali opened up the door for Becky to learn intricate native metal work techniques that possessed an ancient look, but were still very modern. This was something she had never seen before. She soon began designing her own pieces, working with a Balinese artisan. Originally made for her own personal jewelry collection, it wasn’t long before she landed in high end stores around the United States. This is how Anna Beck Designs came to life in 2003.
All pieces are handmade in Bali and are sterling silver and 18k gold plated. Each jewelry piece is made with a different ancient Balinese technique that dates back hundreds of years. Designer Becky Hosmer resides in Bali where she oversees production.
