Hi, my name is Margo. Artistry and creativity are in my family genes and these genes have been passed onto me.

I have been designing and making jewelry for 8 years-- I still sell to friends but, I also sell at craft fairs and I have a number of my pieces in local boutiques and bridal stores. My passion for creating new pieces of jewelry is constantly blossoming. There’s still so much more to learn and so much more to create…
