Hi! I’m Annie, and I’m on a journey. Born and raised in the great state of Kansas, I embarked on culinary school and later worked as a pastry chef in some of the best kitchens in New York City. That led to starting my own bakeshop in Atlanta, Georgia before eventually feeling the desire to get my hands dirty with silver and brass instead of flour and sugar.
Enter jewelry metalsmith school in Florence, Italy and the creation of Sonder Goods.
The word Sonder means ‘the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid as and complex as your own.’ It’s the discovery of these parallel stories that excites me and inspires me to create. Every piece in the Sonder Goods collection is named after people and places the have been impactful to me and embodies the notion that all of us, in our collective journeys, are connected.
Sonder Goods works with local artisans all of over the world to bring you gorgeous, handcrafted and unique pieces. I love the mix of organic with modern design, of course, made ethically. Between our candles, baskets, jewelry and throws, I hope to bring you pieces that inspire and make you feel like home wherever you are. You can also have the peace of mind knowing everything has been made sustainably and ethically.
I hope you see your story in the line and know that wherever you’re at on your journey, you’re not alone.
