Today I would like to feature one of Fragments’ closest friends and beloved designers. Annie Fensterstock is a master of immaculate craftsmanship and impeccable, unique design. Her jewelry is absolutely stunning. We congratulate and honor Annie everyday for her spectacular work and today, more than ever. Annie’s jewelry just made it into the esteemed World Gold Council juried collection of new gold jewelry designs, as edited by a Blue Ribbon Panel of industry experts. Congrats Annie, this is so well deserved and we are thrilled for you!
