ELSIE DRAGONFLY EARRINGS
Artist: Anne Koplik Designs (Brewster, NY)
The dragonfly, in almost every part of the world, exemplifies transformation and renewal. These richly hued antique brass earrings feature hand enameled teal dragonflies with a Swarovski® crystal crusted tail and generous Swarovski® crystal wing accents in Caribbean blue, teal, emerald green, deep brown, and tan – along with beautifully faceted Swarovski® crystal briolette drops. Nickel/lead free leverback ear wires.
Each Anne Koplik Designs piece is handcrafted with time-tested techniques that no foreign assembly line or machine can match. Their work endures because they use only the finest materials; hand-mixed enamels, freshwater pearls and mother of pearl, Swarovski Elements©, solid brass, surgical steel posts for earrings, and more. And to ensure your safety, their creations are always 100% lead and nickel free.

Anne Koplik’s love for jewelry began as a child standing in front of Van Cleef & Arpels, 5th avenue windows and being dazzled by the replica of Empress Josephine's crown. Over 30 years ago Anne Koplik Designs was born on the dining room table of Anne’s Long Island home. As the business grew Anne’s two daughters, Jill and Kara joined as her partners – Jill in design, and Kara in the operations of the business.
“As a single mother, I wanted to create a business that would support my family. The most rewarding aspect of that business is that I come to work and see my daughters every day.” – Anne Koplik
Today Anne Koplik Designs has developed into an international brand worn by those same mothers and daughters across the globe. For women who appreciate quality, their contemporary jewelry collection is proudly handcrafted one piece at a time in their Brewster, NY workshop.
Anne Koplik has chosen to keep manufacturing in the USA due to the superior workmanship available here and to support the American worker. Each piece is a work of art using only the finest materials and metals, including Swarovski Elements©, semiprecious stones, solid brass, antique glass beads, and exclusive hand enameling.
