Meet Anna Janelle
Designer and CEO
I started making jewelry in 2012 as a way to grow a blossoming friendship. I saw my jewelry had transformative powers to uplift and ignite everyone it touched. I grew more and more interested in jewelry-making: teaching myself the delicate art of wire-wrapping, the joyful adventure of finding gemstones and building designs around them. I dedicated myself to learning and mastering the fine art of jewelry, and spent 3 years managing production for a local designer, as well as taking classes in Santa Barbara and Amsterdam.
Anna Janelle Jewelry originated in 2017 along the dreamy canals of Amsterdam, Netherlands. I had the incredible opportunity to live abroad for 2 years and explore a part of my mulitracial heritage in the Netherlands. I’m inspired by the minimalistic and functional nature of Dutch design and the laid back lifestyle of Santa Barbara. I believe my designs are a unique combination of these elements that offer a sophisticated yet laid back look. While living abroad I spent my days participating in open air European markets, taking classes, and developing my line. I moved back to Santa Barbara in 2019 bringing back with me my business and Dutch spirit.
Though my business has grown from the small, friendship-founded beacon it started as, community and the bonds that link us all together have remained important to me throughout the growth process. As a small, hispanic woman-owned company, and a member of Santa Barbara’s spirited community, I know that no business is an island; I regularly donate to local auctions and fundraising events, and also select a handful of nonprofits to donate to every year. I'm so grateful for the places this journey has brought me, and I hope to become a part of yours.
