Anne Vogt Jewelry
fine handcrafted sterling silver jewelry featuring
rare and unusual gemstones
I create this hand fabricated jewelry
in my Colorado studio in the heart of
the Rocky Mountains.  I have been
making jewelry for over 30 years,
initially just part time.  I began by
bead-stringing and making earrings
out of brass and beads.  Early days
included gypsy-like travels and a
year as a street artist in San
Francisco.
Later, while I was in graduate school at the
University of Michigan, I apprenticed with a
goldsmith who was a great inspiration to
me.  After I finished my degrees in speech
and language pathology, I worked first with
language disordered adolescents near New
Orleans, then with stroke and head injury
victims in a rehabilitation hospital in
Colorado.  I continued to make jewelry
during this time, participating in only 2 art
shows a year, the Ann Arbor Art Fair, and
the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.  I
took several jewelry classes to learn
techniques for surface embellishment,
patina creation, casting, and tool-making.  
I now am fortunate enough to work full time as a
silversmith.  I travel to 18 to 20 juried art festivals a
year, including shows in Michigan, Ohio, Louisiana,
Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma, and here at home in
Colorado.
