“There was a period where I loved ostrich feathers—things that were feminine and girly,” says FOF Ann Hand. “I have become more tailored. I like simple, timeless things.” Ann’s style has evolved as her role has changed: opera singer, wife to a Washington kingpin, mom, and now, jewelry designer to the political elite. Whether crafting pieces for the First Lady or playing with her grandkids, Ann brings sparkle to Washington.
“Washington is a town where you get a lot done after 7:30 at night. We go to quite a few embassy dinners, social functions, political fundraisers…We’ve been in the front row, watching history happen.” —FOF Ann Hand
