finally! i've been talking about starting a jewelry/art/inspiration blog for quite some time now. so this is it! i'll probably tweak it as i go (i went out and bought a "blogging for dummies" book today) but i hope you enjoy my posts anyway.
for those of you who don't know me, my name is marie. i have a bfa in painting but i work as a makeup artist. i recently revisited my passion for jewelry and started to make things i wanted to wear. that turned into making things for other people after they saw me wearing my pieces. then i began selling my pieces at hanan cosmetics & accessories, the beauty boutique where i work. my dream is to continue to learn about jewelry and to reach more people with my art!
as a kid, i wanted so badly to own one of those metal detectors you saw ads for on t.v. i knew that if i owned one, i would find buried treasure. (hey, my favorite movie was the goonies!) sadly, i never fulfilled that fantasy, but i still love the idea of a piece of jewelry looking like it was buried beneath the earth. imperfection is perfect. organic > precise. raw vs. polished. you get the idea.
thank you for visiting and i hope you come back soon!
