Marquina Rawlings' Profile
I started creating artistic jewelry as a business in 1991 (or something like that!). Before that, I actually designed and made some beautiful copper and bronze jewelry in metal shop class in the 10th grade, but I wasn’t thinking about becoming a jewelry artist at that time. (I really wish I could show those jewelry pieces, but they were lost a long time ago…)
My taste has changed since that time. To be able to suspend really smooth rocks in wire from leather cord necklaces is really fascinating. Hmmm, I haven’t done that in a really long time. No matter! I’m always evolving, so it could happen again!
In my constant evolution, I also love to create lots of originals with no duplicates. It keeps my mind sharp and I never get bored.
I like to sometimes make my jewelry look more complica…
