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.
My journey started with a store online 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 2018 I was an exhibitor in the Chicago area, Ann Arbor, MI, here in Louisville and also Cincinnati, OH. Now, as I start to firm up my show schedule for 2019, I will be doing a wonderful trunk show in Shelbyville, KY and will be an exhibitor at the American Artisan Festival in Nashville, TN. I look forward to participating again in Ann Arbor at the State Street Art Fair and the Big Four Bridge Art Festival at Waterfront Park here at home in Louisville. I plan to introduce some new precious metal pieces as part of my exploration of metalsmithing. Taking metalsmithing classes has been so much fun and I love learning new skills..I will be including some earrings, cuff bracelets and wire collar necklaces.
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.
