Congratulations To January’s Random Review Winner!

Written by Diane Rein

Congratulations to Annie Band, our Random Review Winner for January! Annie reviewed a pack of Natural Rhodolite Garnet Gemstones she purchased from Cool Tools and was selected as this month’s winner.

Annie was excited and included her bio for us:

Terrific news, thanks for the email!

Here’s my brief bio:

Annie Band has been designing jewelry for most of her life. She lives in Wilson, Wyoming with her husband Jon, their nine-year-old son Perrin, dog, cat, salamander, fish, occasional bats & lots of roaming wildlife.  She is an eclectic mix of artist, teacher, wildlife biologist, poet, and conservationist. Annie draws from a diverse toolbox to create intensely personal pieces that connect with our human spirit.

Annie’s jewelry evolves from the inspiration of powerful symbols or totems, and the inscriptions on each carry a special message for the wearer.  Every piece is hand-sculpted with a spiritual attention to the symbol and message.

Everything is made in Annie’s Wilson studio.  In order to minimize all impacts, stones used are mostly recycled or lab-grown (instead of being mined).  Metals are chosen to minimize environmental impacts as well.  This is an important reflection of Annie’s ethics.

These designs feel lovely to touch, are beautiful to the eye, and powerfully inspirational to the wearer.”

After ever purchase, you get an email asking you to review the products you purchased. You can also go to the product page on our site and scroll down to the review section and click “Write a Review”.

Your thoughts help fellow jewelry artists understand the products better. Keep reviewing products and help us Congratulate Annie this month!
