Anna Balkan Jewelry

Russia Necklace

One afternoon on a whim, I decided to stop in Anna Balkan’s studio in Norcross.  As soon as I walked through her door, I was greeted and asked to come in for a truly unique experience. Eyeballing the colorful gemstones in her pieces (that display more like sugared rock candy), Anna quickly came over and opened as many cases as I wanted. She showed me all the pieces that spoke to me, “Let’s play,” she said with a smile.  And with that came necklace after necklace draped around my neck, bracelets layering my arms, and chandelier earrings dangling from my earlobes catching the overhead light. I was pretty sure I heard angels singing because I was HOME!  This has to be what Paradise looks like, I thought. Then she spun me around to meet my reflection and I was bedazzled with her beautiful creations. I know it sounds crazy, but the more jewels she added, the better I looked!  Because that’s the beauty of her pieces: they all look great together and transition from day to night with ease. What fun we had! I now know how it feels to be Cinderella when all the little birds were helping her into that fabulous ball gown. All I needed was Prince Charming to arrive with a black American Express! I left with a great pair of earrings that have enough variety in color; I can wear them with everything I own. Nothing makes me happier than my purchases from Anna Balkan.
