This is the story behind Anice:
“As I sit down to create, I close my eyes and remember…
It’s a Sunday afternoon and I am four years old. I jump out of the car and run towards the white gates of Grandma and Grandpa’s backyard. I leap into Grandpa’s arms and he squeezes me tight, while I squeeze back as hard as my little muscles can. Then I look to Grandma, smiling in her lounge chair. Her magnificent, glittery earrings, matching her outfit to perfection, capture me instantly. Once again I am enthralled by the splendor of her accessories. I make my way over to play with her many rings and admire the fascinating objects that decorate her ears.
“Grandma, one day can I wear pretty jewels like you?” "
Anice Kulak is Brittany Hopkins’s grandmother. She attributes her obsession and dedication to designing jewellery to her. Anice is the inspiration to her creations.
