UrbanMagdalene's Shop Announcement

Welcome to Urban Magdalene! Urban Magdalene is more than jewelry. It is a means of empowerment, an exclamation of beauty, a sign of creativity, and a desire to connect to a larger idea. The female imagery of the vintage medallions is an expression not necessarily that of religion, but rather recognition of a woman’s strength and inherent divinity.
A story exists for each piece, whether it is in the process of discovering materials at antique markets, estate sales, sources from overseas, or from a beloved grandmother’s jewelry collection.
Making jewelry is a way for me to connect to a story, to a history not my own. It’s not just the story of the individual piece, but those who wore it before my discovery that fascinates me. I like to imagine how it was used and its significance to the owner if I don’t know the exact origins. Perhaps it was a gift, passed from generation to generation, symbolically referencing the strength and stories passed from woman to woman.
And then I step in. I deconstruct it, reimagine it, and transform it. Through the artistic process, I give it new life and a new story for a new woman.
