Announcement    Welcome, and thank you for visiting my shop. I regret to say that I will be closing my Etsy shop on June 30 as I have once again been a victim of Etsy's new automated monitoring system and I cannot go on without knowing which of my listings will be deactivated from day to day. I have also had to increase my prices due to ever increasing fees, and I don't feel good about that either, especially in the current economic environment in the US. Even though it isn't quite ready I will be activating my website, www.marygunndesigns.com, on June 1, though it will be connected to Etsy until the 30th. All of my listings will be available at that site and I hope you will find me there. I am saddened that I cannot continue here as I have been on Etsy for 12 years and have had many interactions with customers that I value greatly. However, nothing is as constant as change, and I will make the make the best of this one.

Serendipity

My start in metalsmithing was completely by accident. I grew up learning all the textile and fiber/needle arts from my mother and I had three older sisters who all became very talented in one area or another to look up to. In designing some fancy pillows for my living room, I decided that using copper accents would look great and went looking for a way to learn to make my own. I found jewelry classes at a local community college and fell in love with the art. I've been making jewelry and experimenting with other pieces in my spare time for the last 6 or 7 years. Inspired in part by my oldest sister who developed a brain tumor and passed away recently, and the desire to make the most of my art while I still can, I've recently cut back to working 1 or 2 days a week in my dental hygiene profession and starting building my jewelry business. My love of making shawl pins is related, I am sure, to my mother's and sisters' talents with needles and hooks and my own humble efforts with them. I attend many knitting shows like Vogue Knitting Live and will attend my first Stitches show in 2017. Jewelry, however, is my main focus. I have always felt naked if I went out without earrings. Personal adornment has been around since prehistoric times, and I find that wearing jewelry can make one feel a little more special, whether it's to compliment a particular outfit or you just need to lift your spirits. My own heritage is Celtic, and I love designs that have that feel to them. My hope and desire is to make jewelry that will last and be loved for many years and be passed on to future generations.

    Living in the Pacific Northwest provides me with inspiration from both nature and man-made architecture for my designs. Metalsmithing is my life's love, and my goal is to create pieces that will be loved and last for years to come.

Welcome to my store! I hope you find something you like. I love creating unique pieces of art jewelry. Although I generally work in silver, any of these items can be made in gold at additional cost for the materials. Custom orders are also available, so if you have a design in mind let's talk about it. Please contact me for changes in sizing or if you'd like a different stone. Most items will be shipped in a gift box, and gift wrap is available. I'm always happy to answer questions about any of my work. Please feel free to contact me through Etsy, or my email at marygunndesigns [!at] gmail.com
