Anna Johnson is a studio artist, craftswomen and educator residing in Asheville, NC. She discovered jewelry making at a very young age and from that point on it became not only her creative outlet, but a space of untampered personal expression that guided her through her educational, professional, and personal development. Equally taken by the depths of the natural world, organic elements began to be her main source of inspiration as her language in jewelry developed.
Today her work explores the question of Western culture intrinsic and utilitarian value in adornment. -- Anna incorporates "traditional" jewelry materials (silver, gold and gemstones) with typically undervalued, overlooked or discarded elements found in nature (bone, for example. She combines these elements in unpredictable and unpretentious ways to create beautiful sculptural pieces.
