Mary Hildebrand's Profile

About

I've worked with textiles since I was about 8 years old. My mom taught all of us to do needlework, sew, knit and crochet. A few years ago I happened across a jewelry class looking for a way to make metal ornamentation and fell in love with working with metals. It's a wonderful medium to work with. I love the process of creating something that is both beautiful and wearable, and that will last for years to come and hopefully be passed on to the next generation. All of my pieces are made by hand, including ear wires and clasps. In some cases, even the wire I've used is hand poured and drawn. I have found a way to combine both loves, textiles and metal, in some of my work, and create pieces that are quite unique. Most of what you'll see in my shop is metalwork, but occasionally I'll be throwing in items made from textiles and fibers just to keep it interesting.
