About The Artist
Andréa Banks • Chicago, IL
Jewelry • WHOLESALE AVAILABLE • CUSTOM COMMISSIONS
On the surface Banks Designs is about creating confident, timeless, distinct jewelry for the person who beats to their own drum. But it's more than that to me. This business and my craft are my personal commitment to happiness, joy, and myself. A daily practice in saying yes, trusting my gut, and finding myself through jewelry. I take inspiration from my daily life, history, and stones and use it to hand fabricate pieces in gold plated brass, vermeil, and gold-fill with semi-precious stones.

Tell us how your work is made.
I make all of my work by hand in my home studio in Chicago, IL. For parts of the production process that cannot be performed safely in my studio, I work with local family-owned businesses.
