Our Story

Have you ever had trouble finding the perfect piece of jewelry, so you decided to create your own? Well, I did!

Hey, I'm Sam, and welcome to Anthea by Samantha Ann!

Anthea is the root of my name Samantha, and in English, translates to "flowery" or "blossom". I truly believe adding a piece of jewelry to your outfit gives you an aura of confidence. I want my jewelry to give you that feeling, and help you flourish and blossom in all aspects of your life.

At the beginning of the summer of 2022, I wanted more anklets in different styles and colors to complement my outfits. I searched countless beach stores in NJ for the perfect pieces, but I could not find anything I loved at a reasonable price. After a few months of anklet-less searches, I decided to create my own.

Creating my own jewelry gave me the ability to design exactly what I wanted and exercise my creativity. I soon had a collection of beautiful jewelry that I was unintentionally keeping to myself, and I wanted to keep making more. Towards the end of the summer, I began sharing my jewelry with family and close friends. They were enthralled by my pieces and encouraged me to share my small business with everyone.

I am so grateful to my family and friends, as I would not be running a successful business without them. They have helped me during every step of the process, including photographing jewelry to sell online, creating and designing a website, and participating in vendor events. Most importantly, they have provided me with ideas, inspiration, and unwavering support.

What started out of necessity has flourished into an exhilarating hobby and business opportunity, and I am so grateful to share it with you. I am always open to custom orders and requests, since my goal is to provide for you what I was originally searching for - unique and desirable pieces of jewelry at an afforable cost.

I truly hope you enjoy wearing my jewelry as much as I enjoy making it.

With love,
