Necklace and earrings
Established in 2004, Heart’s Desire Jewelry is a boutique design studio single-handedly run by award-winning artist Ann Marie Hodrick.
"For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a creative person. From sewing and crafting as a child, to painting, drawing, and metalsmithing in high school. In college, my love of art and design took me to New Orleans, where I continued my studies and explored ceramics, printmaking, and fiber art at Loyola University.
I started Heart’s Desire Jewelry because I love working with my hands to create something beautiful for others to enjoy. I have always felt the need to live a creative life. To me, living a creative life means listening to your heart and soul, to bring to life your most passionate dreams.
I’m committed to seeking out materials that are remarkably unique, so that I can craft jewelry that tells a story of intrigue, interest, and inspiration. Every element surprises me and captures my attention, whether it’s a rare gemstone, a shimmering pearl, or other exotic elements like ancient fossils and artifacts. I’m fascinated by color and textures, often drawing on my everyday experiences like bright hues from blossoms in a garden, the shapes in a city scape or the way waves on the ocean catch the sunlight." - Ann Marie
Using responsibly-sourced, high-quality natural stones and rare organic elements, Hodrick creates necklaces, earrings, and bracelets that not only look good, but they make you feel good, too.
