Annie Has Been Making Handmade Jewelry for 20 Years. She started creating her jewelry in 1998 while still teaching English at BMC Durfee High School in Fall River, MA. In June 2008, upon retiring after a 35 year teaching career, she rented an artist's studio at the Narrows Center For the Arts at Battleship Cove in Fall River. For the next 4 1/2 years, we opened the studio prior to more than 400 performances at the Narrows and participated in more than 100 Arts and craft fairs, mostly on Cape Cod.
Late in 2012, we decided to look for a storefront location in our hometown of Somerset, MA. We found our current location far sooner than we expected and opened in December 2012.
