Ann R. Korman is the founder and designer of ARKjems. She’s always had an affinity for artistic design and culture; after graduating from Cornell in 1989, she went on to earn her MFA, showed artwork in New York galleries, and worked as a fashion editor for Conde Nast. Soon after, she moved to Los Angeles, where she now lives with her husband, two daughters, and french bulldog, Babe. Ann and her family love to travel, and have visited many corners of the world. On these trips, Ann learns about the the natural and historic culture and history of an area, and often brings these ideas home and stylistically incorporates them in her work. Her natural eye for design led her to begin designing jewelry in the pursuit to create luxurious, wearable pieces- both modern and vintage-inspired. ARKjems is produced by hand in Los Angeles, CA. Through her pieces, Ann hopes to inspire confident and forward-moving individuals; wear the arrow to remind you always forward, never back.
