~~~~~~ A Little More About Me ~~~~~~
First off, I'm a girl :) I know that might be a strange thing to point out, but it seems that my name is a boy's name in many cultures. Not a big deal, really - I just didn't want to seem as if I were misrepresenting myself!

My "day job" is designing and creating my own line of sterling silver jewelry: www.MarloM.com which I established as a full-time wholesale line in 1993.

Wow. I can hardly believe it's been that long! I have done everything from home shows, retail shows and lots and lots of wholesale trade shows. I've done lots of mentoring and consulting for new artists too. I love to share what I've learned over the years. Actually, if you have any questions about moving from retail to wholesale, feel free to ask...I'd be happy to help.

I'm also the leader for etsyRAIN.com - the official Etsy Team in Seattle, WA and organizer for many local events for creative entrepreneurs including the new HandmadeHappyHourSeattle.com for wholesale-ready craft businesses.

~~~~~~ About my shop name ~~~~~~
My silly shop name came about because every time I show something I've made to my friends they all declare, "Oh! That's SO Cuuuute!" So when I was trying to think of a name for my Etsy shop, I figured it would be a nice homage to my friends support of my work. Cute, right?

For all the When/Where/What/Who/Why/How's (including shipping and return info and wholesale requests), please read my "shop policies" page...

I welcome all questions, comments and inquiries.
Thank you for looking at my Cute Stuff!

~~~~~~ About the Jewelry ~~~~~~
I create every piece of jewelry by hand in my Seattle, WA studio. Many of the jewelry and other accessories you see in this shop were part of my line of hand-fabricated contemporary sterling silver jewelry and accessories: Marlo M. Jewelry Design (http://marlom.com) and are not available anywhere else.

If you see something you like but want more than one or a different size, convo me! I also am very experienced in working in wholesale quantities, so please contact me with your requests.

Custom designs and commissions are always welcome.
