Welcome to the website of Alpha Centauri Gems! My name is Annie Goodrich and I love colored stones. I have been playing with jewelry since I was very young. My grandmother gave me her clip-on earrings to play with, and I pretended that they were swans swimming on my bed. My first attempt at goldsmithing was when I took a pair of nailclippers to a small pinkie ring to try to cut the shank to make the ring adjustable; this did not work. Little did I know that thirty-five years later, I would be successfully soldering this same gold pinkie ring in my jewelry class!

The first time I strung a strand of beads (shells) together, I used dental floss. Needless to say, the tools of my trade have evolved along with my progressing age (and hopefully maturity). The works you see on my website were all made in the last five years and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about any of them. I love talking shop!

I enjoy helping people (yes, men too) figure out what kind of jewelry would suit them...their personality, their lifestyle, their birthstone, etc. to design for them or with them a personal piece. This is what I would like to do for you! But if you do not want a personal piece, there must be something I have made that speaks to you and says "Buy me! Buy me!" I'll be happy to tell you any prices. There are dozens of categories of jewelry in the menu to the left. To find a piece that you like, just click on a category, then click on the picture to see more about that piece.

Here are some of my personal favorite pieces:
