Anne D'Alauro has always been a lover of crystal and glass beads. She started to make jewelry as a creative outlet, using these components to design wearable pieces. Anne particularly enjoys designing necklaces, currently focusing on pieces that feature clusters of crystal, pearls, Czech, and other funky beads, that are both fun to make as well as to wear.
Anne is a native of Massachusetts, spent many years in the DC metro area, and now resides in Washington County with her husband and two children.
