I asked Anna, our Intern / Granulation Specialist, to write a little something about herself for our blog and this is what she came up with...
Hello! My name is Anna Tinkelenberg and I've been working for Kristen for almost 1 year. I am a student at the Savannah College of Art and Design, where I am pursuing a B.F.A. in Jewelry. I am the blog editor for the SCAD Jewelry Club. This fall I will be entering my senior year of college, which means I will be creating my senior collection, which is both exciting and terrifying.
This summer I am helping with numerous tasks, such as business strategizing, photographing pieces, assembling chain elements, and social media planning. When I work in the studio, I mainly work on the Ripple Collection and the Hot off the Bench. When Kristen asks if I can do something, the answer is yes 9 times out of 10. I often get distracted by the studio mascots, Billy Drew and Remy. I can't help it. They are just too cute.
Outside of work and school, I try to have a life that is not centered on jewelry. While I am not a serious runner, I try to run 3 times a week. My favorite animal is a Giant Panda. I am a firm believer in Taco Tuesday. This past spring I studied abroad in Lacoste, France, which perked my interest in travelling. I enjoy spending holidays with my family back home in North Carolina.
I'm looking forward to another year in Savannah, working with Kristen!
