Style with a Story! Storyology Design and Publication® (SD&P) is a jewelry, antique, and book publishing company offering antiques, antique couture coin purse necklaces, heirloom quality fine jewelry, and historical romance novels under the ownership of antique dealer, jewelry designer, and author Jan Agnello. Jan's jewelry collections include the much-sought-after antique coin purse necklaces from the Edwardian, Victorian, Georgian, and Regency Eras. Jan designs each piece herself and uses only the highest quality materials to ensure the SD&P brand’s timelessness and beauty. As a Storyologist, one who is a seeker of hidden stories from the past and present, Jan shares with her customers the stories behind antiques and jewelry. SD&P publishes historical romance novels paired with a jewelry collection designed by Jan featuring the protagonist’s name. The first is THE CÉCILE COLLECTION, consisting of medallion necklaces, charm bracelets, and earrings all inspired by elements of the novel WITH KISSES FROM CÉCILE.
JAN AGNELLO comes from several generations of hobbiest antiquers. She has been a top-featured dealer at the Scott Antique Market and Lakewood Antique Market in Atlanta, Georgia, and as of 2021, is relocating her company to the quaint town of Evanston, Illinois. Her love of stories behind the antiques inspired her in 2013 to form Storyology Design®, now Storyology Design and Publication® (SD&P). The necklaces Jan crafts from antique coin purses have generated a loyal customer following and garnered attention from the Atlanta Journal Constitution, jewelry network executives, and TV and film costume designers. Jan's love of books, romance, history, and unique jewelry design led her to collaborate with author Anne Armistead to offer a series of historical novels, each paired with heirloom quality jewelry named for the female protagonist. WITH KISSES FROM CÉCILE is SD&P's first release.
ANNE ARMISTEAD is a writer of historical romance. She earned her English literature degree from the University of Georgia and her MFA in creative writing from Spalding University. Her background includes project management with AT&T and teaching English at the middle, high, and college levels. She is a member of the Atlanta Writers Club, the Southeastern Writers Association, and the Historical Novel Society. The historical romance WITH KISSES FROM CÉCILE is her second novel, following the publication of DANGEROUS CONJURINGS (Soul Mate Publishing, April 2018). Anne writes for and serves as an editor for Storyology Design and Publication® (SD&P). Her work-in-progress is entitled THE CAROUSEL TRAVELER, a time travel romance to be released in 2021 by Storyology Design & Publication and featuring companion jewelry designed by Jan Agnello named after the book's protagonist, THE MIRABELLE COLLECTION.
