This is the 3rd item I have purchased from this talented artist. You had better buy from her direct right now. The rumor mill has it that popular Dancer / Country Singer Julianne Hough LOVES Martha's jewelry and plans to license an entire line of jewelry designed by Mar-Mar Jewels.

About

I must create

Most kids have lemonade stands. I, however, used to sell pretty leaves and painted rocks in front of my house. The entrepreneur in me has always shown it's face.

Most of the jewelry I make through chasing and repousse is by pure, happy accident. Although, I usually end up liking the end result way better than the intended project.
I never would have chosen chasing and repousse as my favorite medium... I like to think that it chose me. It entails hours of labor. Banging and banging on the same piece of metal until it is transformed into something completely different. Sometimes my fingers bleed. My shoulders and neck ache. my wrists hate me... not surprisingly, it is not a very popular method. Call me a sadist, but I love every moment of it!

In the summer, I can be found sitting behind the counter of my hand made jewelry boutique "MarMar" on Block Island, Rhode Island. Sometimes you'll catch me with a hammer in my hand.
I like to think of it as a step up from pretty leaves and rocks... but really, who am I kidding?
