Fabulous Jewelry by DC Designer Ana Joa

The other day, DC-based jewelry designer Ana Joa invited me over to see her newest designs.

As usual, I was totally enthralled with every piece. Ana is such an inspired artist! All her works are made in semi-precious stones like Agate, Jade, and Quartz, as well as one of a kind found objects, including antique pendants and beads. She draws her inspiration from her many travels, as well as her backround in art (she used to head an art gallery in Cuba!).

Pictured is just some of the "to die for" loveliness I saw. To see any of her pieces, you can visit her site ...or just e-mail Ana for a private show!
