Ann-Made, LLC

Our Story

 
The vision and passion behind Ann-Made's line of jewelry is Ann Skydell Harmon, a former special education art teacher. She set out to design a unique and chic product to promote recycling, as well as to show that a business can "do good" for society and the planet in all aspects of its operation.

The bracelets, pendants, earrings and our newest addition, barrettes are Ann's unique creations made from upcycled soda can tabs. The jewelry is a great way to remind us that a little creativity can put many discarded materials to new use. Ann-Made is the proud recipient of the Green America Seal of Approval for environmental and social responsibility.

Our goal is to do as much good as possible for the environment and our communities and leave as little a footprint as possible.

Our Qualities

Values We Believe In:

 

 

Get to Know Us

 
What inspires you?
I love to see when someone has thought outside of the box and used their creative problem solving skills. The end result is often creative, innovative and almost always has a positive impact on the rest of us.
 
What is your favorite part about creating your products?
Knowing that not only is Ann-Made offering a very cool and unique product but that we're helping the earth be healthier as well as those that live on it, make this the best business in the world!
 
What is the toughest part of your day?
The best and the worst part of running a business like this is that it takes the wearing of many different hats to make it all happen. It's exhilarating to be involved in so many different aspects of designing, creating, marketing and selling. And yet sometimes a little ho-hum wouldn't be so bad.
 
What was the best day in company history?
Probably the best day we've ever had is the first day of the Philadelphia Gift Show in 2010, our very first time exhibiting our work at a wholesale show. The response was over the top and we added 50 new retail accounts in just 3 days.
 
What was the biggest decision you ever had to make?
The hardest decisions are always when you're feeling growing pains in a business. The only way to grow is to move into a bigger building, add more people or increase your inventory. You know you believe in yourself and your product but it's always a risk to increase spending to make that happen. You certainly don't want to take a chance with anyone else's life so it's always a little scary to make those decisions, yet often very worthwhile and the right choice.
 
Where do you see yourselves in 5 years?
Ann-Made has seen incredible growth since we started in 2007. The enthusiasm we've seen from retail and wholesale customers alike ensures that we are offering something very special. In 5 years we hope to have grown from over 200 shops, galleries and museums in the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean to more than 1,000 worldwide.
