Meet the Maker
Ann Finnemore: designer and jewellery maker
I'm Ann - designer and maker of all the jewellery here at Robin and Wren. As you might have guessed, I'm a true lover of nature, whether in my own garden or out in woodlands and meadows. In fact my jewellery business is named after two of the regular little visitors to our garden here in SW Leicestershire.
The natural world has always been a passion of mine and I am constantly inspired by the flora and fauna around me. As well as walking in the countryside with my husband and our two terriers, I also volunteer with the local park rangers to help with the maintenance of our local country park in Market Bosworth.
I love both the textures and the gorgeous colours found in nature - from the flora and fauna to the elements such as the the sky, the sea, and the rocks. I reflect these in my designs and include natural gemstones, and occasionally glass and created stones, to bring these colours into my work.
I hope you can see my love of the natural world, large and small, in my designs as I try to reflect its beauty in the jewellery I make. If you are also someone who loves the feel of the breeze against your skin and the sound of the birds singing in the trees, then I hope you'll find what you're looking for here.
Jewellery is such a personal item, and handmade items which are unique or very limited edition are an opportunity for you to express yourself and your own passions. I use recycled silver to make my pieces and they are items which will last and stay beautiful for years to come.
Thank you for reading this, and I hope you'll enjoy looking at the items I have made. Hopefully, you'll find the perfect gift here - for yourself or for someone you love.
