Point of View: Designer Spotlight on ARK

Ann Korman is, first and foremost, a painter. But after nearly a decade of designing fine jewels, the founder of ARK Fine Jewelry in Los Angeles has forged a reputation for achieving the same dreamy effects using gemstones.

Broken English Jewelry - Point of View - Designer Spotlight on ARK, Ann Korman

“I paint every day and study the watercolor flowing across the page — that’s what I’m trying to capture when I place the stones,” Korman says. “I’m always trying to express that painterliness in jewelry.”

In her latest collection, Awakenings, Korman unites her various inspirations, from the spiritual concepts that she learned a decade ago, after spending time in India, to her globetrotting adventures. “The new collection is an intersection of ancient wisdom, my sculpting training, my painting training, my global travels and all the spiritual knowledge I bring to them,” she says.

Up next for Korman is a collection drawn from a recent trip to Scandinavia, where she witnessed the Northern Lights. “The colors are very light and cheerful,” she says.

Reflecting on her journey from painter to jeweler, Korman says finding a home at Broken English has brought her full circle. “Before I made jewelry, I was a collector, and Broken English is where I would shop,” she says. “When I said I wanted to make jewelry, Broken English was the place I wanted to be in.”
