A multi-talented artist, Ann Spence discovered her gifts when she was a child making necklaces and jewelry. As an adult she took a detour into other artistic pursuits, such as writing and painting portraits of children. Yet, she continued crafting jewelry as a hobby. Increasing demand for her jewelry led her to found She Bee in 2011. Her pieces, influenced by her love of folk art and classic shapes, burst with color and give a sense of play when accessorizing. She uses rainbow sapphires and colored topaz set on foil in sterling silver with 14-karat gold and rhodium accents, resulting in dramatic accessories of distinction.
