About

Independent jewelry artists Anne Holman and Jen Townsend founded The Smithery as a working metalsmith studio and artist-made shop.   Specializing in contemporary jewelry and modern craft, The Smithery provides a retail storefront showcasing a curated collection of fine handmade goods.   We offer workshops, hands-on events, artist trunk shows and provide a pressure free environment for purchasing thoughtful gifts, commemorating important life events, and adding to your own collections.




An independent jewelry designer and metalsmith for 12 years, Anne has honed her skills in working in silver and gold along with other alternative materials.  Trained in school as a sculptor and printmaker, she fell in love with working in metals and spent years teaching herself the trade of a goldsmith.  She has been involved in the Columbus art community participating in and organizing art events for over a decade.

Working exclusively in recycled precious metals, Anne loves to work directly with clients on custom wedding jewelry and pieces to commemorate special occasions.  She strives to make something personal specifically suited to you that will last a lifetime.

Anne earned her BFA from Columbus College of Art & Design and has five years experience teaching undergraduate and continuing professional studies courses in Jewelry and Small Metals at CCAD.

Originally trained as a painter, Jen developed a love for color early on and soon after taking a jewelry class in college, she began experimenting with combining color and metal.  Upon graduating, Jen discovered kiln fired enamel as the perfect way to showcase the bold pattern and color that inspires her work and established her brand, Jen Townsend Jewelry. 
Jen is open to customization and will work with her clients to provide the perfect jewelry piece for their occasion. 
Jen earned her BFA from Columbus College of Art & Design and has years of experience teaching jewelry and enameling workshops to small groups, children, and individuals.
