Located in a small studio in central Bangkok AnnA Jewelry is a unique jewelry line created by, Annebe van Dijk, known to her friends as Anna.

Her interest in jewelry began in 1996. While living in Bali and traveling to nearby tropical islands on her own traditional Buginese schooner, she collected colorful trade beads which she combined with silver components to create unique jewelry designs for herself and her friends.

In 2003, upon moving to the United States with her young family, Anna continued to use materials collected from her travels to Egypt and Asia to expand her small business into a fashionable jewelry line that found popularity in a niche market on the East Coast.

After her move to Bangkok, Anna began designing jewelry that could be produced by “fair trade” workers, a small group of underprivileged women from a Bangkok slum.

Today, AnnA Jewelry is composed of a diverse mix of all kind of beads from Thailand, China and Bali proudly handmade by “fair trade” workers who earn a living wage that supports their families. AnnA Jewelry is a distinctive, exclusive brand available in Bangkok and in select boutiques worldwide.

Anna, inspired by nature, by observation, and by imagination, fashions the parts together in her studio, with careful attention to detail. After the samples are finalized, each jewelry design is copied and manufactured at the “fair trade” project. Each piece is handmade with utmost care and pass stringent quality control standards before sale.
