Profile

Marie Maestas, Jewelry Artist

I look forward to each new day as a day of doing what I love -- creating!
I've been an avid knitter and crocheter all of my life and have now combined this passion with gemstones, pearls, crystal, wood and glass to produce one-of-a-kind gorgeous wire crochet necklaces. Standing in my studio looking at my bead wall is a never-ending source of inspiration for new designs and my mind is always on my next piece. My designing is done in my studio, but I make all my jewelry during a three-hour bus commute to and from work. Even though that commute means I have to get up very early to manage it, I'd never trade it to drive in and miss my creative "fix" every day! My goal is to create jewelry that gets noticed for its uniqueness, creativity and style.
