About metallicmuse

Sales 252
On Etsy since 2009

You know the phrase "necessity is the mother of invention." For me, necessity has been the mother of design inspiration.

Most of the handmade designs that I've dreamed up through the years have been birthed out of some sort of need.

As a new mom, I was looking for a piece of durable jewelry that my sweet little sugarplum (born in December, obviously!) couldn't utterly massacre in a matter of seconds but that still made me feel pretty. Entre the fabric wrapped bangle bracelet.

It's flexible, made with nontoxic materials, and can be chewed on by little razor sharp teeth without damaging the shape or design aesthetic. It's also a great no fuss, versatile addition to a style wardrobe that packs a big punch.

In the early days of learning to be a stay at home mama, a few bangles on my wrist made a uniform of jeans & tanks look like an intentional style statement. Now, 18 months later, they're still a staple in my mostly haphazard wardrobe. Because, to put it simply, they're just so easy to wear!

    As a self taught designer, I've never limited myself to just one or two mediums. Because of this, I have a few different shops that each have their own special flair.

Thanks for visiting Metallic Muse. I am so happy that you are here! My passion for creating roots from a very honest sort of love of beautiful things that says something about the ins and outs of life. My initial design motive was very much "contradiction by design" and I often revisit that notion to see how I, as well as my work, has progressed over the years. I love the irony of imperfections and a lack of predictability in my own work. Like life, those are the things that are real and intriguing and worth noting.
