Hi, friends! I’m Anna, the metalsmith behind Sable Stone - a self-taught, one woman run business based in Whitefish, Montana. I grew up in small town Ohio where a love for rocks, fairytales, flora + fauna, and all things outdoors was cultivated early on. After completing a degree in Soil Science and a few stints on sustainable farms across the country I found myself in Northwest Montana. Here I spend summers working as a hydrological/fisheries/soils technician, fly fishing, mushroom hunting, hiking, and rafting. Aside from skiing, the off season is when I’m able to reflect on inspirations and turn them into metal.
I’ve never been a fan of traditional jewelry - I’ve always preferred a rougher, natural, not-so-perfect look. When I was younger I’d adorn myself with things found in the woods, the field, or on the beach, coming home with pockets full of rocks more often than not. Shark teeth necklaces and feather earrings were among the staples.
Sable Stone is an evolution of that style - organic, dark, inspired by nature’s subtle imperfections, but still pretty and whimsical.
Thanks for looking! I hope you find something you love.
