Early in Annie’s career....
An article entitled “A Life Devoted to Jewels” in The Louisville Times "Scene" Magazine was both an accurate summary of that point in time as well as things to come...
"Annie, I couldn’t have found a more fitting way to commemorate my 25 years in the Teamsters Union than with one of your works of art. Your attention to detail is remarkable. You took my crazy idea, added your artistic genius and created a ring that, by far, exceeded all of my already high expectations. Thank you!!"
"It was worth everything just to see the look on her face!"
"You are truly a gifted and extremely talented artist and craftsperson. It is such a joy to find someone as yourself who can take what I have in my mind’s eye and make it a reality… I am very willing to tell anyone you would like me to how great working with you has been as well as the above and beyond quality you deliver."
"I just gave my wife a custom designed Annie K ring for Christmas. She said that in the forty five years we have been together, this was the best gift that she has received. I completely agree. This ring is a masterpiece. This may be my first custom ring but definitely will not be my last."
"Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how pleased I was with the bracelet you custom made for Jack. He absolutely loves it. He hasn’t taken it off his wrist since he received it. He has plenty of jewelry, but nothing compares to this special piece. I am sure I will be working with you in the future."
"I’m speechless, no words in the dictionary that can express my happiness, great job. I will totally recommend your work to all my clients. I’m speechless."
