Anne Marie Le Flanchec, Founder and Designer of AWKN1, has held a lifelong interest and gravitation toward fine art and spirituality. Raised in Paris surrounded by inspiring and rich French culture; she pursued her passions in the areas of art history, interior design, and jewelry design (the latter, being involved in the jewellery industry for 25 years). Anne-Marie’s engagement in the practice of Tibetan Buddhism has also been the source of her inspirations in creating the AWKN1 brand. Today, Anne-Marie likes to share her time between Paris, Los Angeles and Thailand, a playground for her inspirations. Born from the union of two passions, AWKN1 is the child of beauty and wisdom. Inspired by the universal principle of wisdom, AWKN1 offers unique collections of fine jewellery with a devotion to luxury craftsmanship.
The designs are contemporary and elegant, yet sometimes edgy and provoking. With their own clear conviction, AWKN1 jewelry collections exposes meaning and purpose, and honors the essence and potential of the human spirit. AWKN1 believes in dreaming the world into a wiser and kinder reality, and sharing its intrinsic beauty.
