Hello and welcome to Maggie Made Designs. My design interest has been developed over many years. I took an interest in beading and designing jewelry about 10 years ago and it has only continued to grow. It has become my true creative passion; an artistic sense of joy. I enjoy putting colors and textures together in unique and fun, stylish designs. I use precious, semi-precious stones, precious metals and some glass beads for my designs. Recently I have enjoyed manipulating wire by hammering, twisting and coiling to make wire collar necklaces, earrings and bracelets. Some of these pieces have pendants and are wire wrapped with stones and some are simply beautiful on their own.
My journey started with a store on a large website for over 2 years, selling across the country and internationally. I decided in order to truly expand my creativity and independence, I needed to set up my own shop. I trademarked my business name and thus, MaggieMadeDesigns was born! In addition to my own website, I showcase my jewelry designs on Etsy with my store called MMDArtisanJewelry. To complement my on line presence I participate in juried shows around the country. In 2017 I participated in shows in Alexandria, Va, DC, Ann Arbor, MI and Louisville, KY as well as trunk shows at a day spa and salon in the Old Town area of Alexandria, VA and in the boutique of the Tides Inn, Irvington, VA.
For 2018, this artistic chapter continues to change and grow! My husband and I have moved back to my hometown of Louisville, KY. We are now much closer to family. This move is giving me a new opportunity to explore juried shows in an easy driving distance from home such as the Chicago area, parts of Indiana, Tennessee and more! Of course my dream would be to have a presence here in my hometown of Louisville.
Please take a look at my website, Etsy store and show schedule. I hope something will catch your attention! Please feel free to contact me with any questions!! Thank you.
