Revival Jewelry draws its inspiration from the mid-twentieth-century modern makers of craft. The shapes, designs and motifs of Revival Jewelry echo those found in American craft between the 1940s and 1960s. At that time, opportunities through university programs in studio craft advanced American craft into the realm of fine art. During the 1950s, major museums across America featured modern craft exhibitions.
The expressions found in the Revival Jewelry collections offer you, the twenty-first-century collector, an array of exceptional, handcrafted wearable art, which revives the modern designs and craftsmanship of the mid-twentieth century.
Ann Howington, designer and fabricator creates and constructs pendants, brooches, earrings, bolos and rings in her Denton, Texas studio. She works primarily in sterling silver to which she occasionally adds other materials, such as Chemetal, glass, wood, gems and/or stones.
While aesthetically inspired by the mid-twentieth-century American crafts, Revival Jewelry does not copy any artist's designs directly. Ann's work is merely a nod to the great jewelry produced during that pivotal era.
