My web site for Annamari Mikkola Adornments was barely two years old and it was definitely time to redo it. Mainly, I needed to introduce a new theme that would accommodate web store functionality. Embarassingly, it was lacking the elementary responsive functionality. Now the site navigation is easier to use through all mobile devices.
While I was doing all these coding changes, I thought design could as well be lighter and more airy. Additionally, it was necessary to separate my web design business from the jewelry design. Those two sides of my split personality, desperately needed individual branding. I still need to put together the web store. In the meanwhile, you can visit the Etsy store for limited selection or contact me for special orders.
I was super excited to get the latest Art Jewelry Magazine in the mail. This highly regarded national magazine is always full of great articles and beautiful jewelry pictures. To get published is an honor, and on the July 2013 issue they prominently featured my Rings Ring. You can see it in the picture above. Close-up on the left. They also posted it on the online gallery for the featured work.
This ring made out of rings is symmetrical, balanced and perfectly proportioned, reminding us of a more ancient art of jewelry making. It is 3D printed stainless steel and gold plated.
Design Jewelry and Accessories is a brand new digital magazine that presents new jewelry trends and unique designs, as well as beautiful handmade jewelry and accessories. Annamari Mikkola Creative was covered extensively at its "Art Special" section of the November 2012 issue.
Also, the main site is being updated. Please see the new press page here.
Bank of America Small Business Community is a great resource for small business owners. They just went live with a really nice article about 3D printing and design. I got to comment and explain how I use 3D printing in jewelry design. It is a good read that really makes the process easier to understand.
