Mary Shultz, Jewelry

I design and create my jewelry for women of all ages, types and economic backgrounds from traditional jewelry materials as well as sea urchin, leather, paper, wood, and bone. I have also created shadow box art from beads.

 

My designs begin with something which caught my eye. A friend says that when she sees me looking at something and hears me say “Oooh, what do you want to be?", she knows that my next creative project has just started.

 

I will start with an idea, but typically the design transforms into another idea as elements are added to it. My style continues to expand, influenced by books, period pieces, people from other cultures. My primary artistic focus is color, texture, clean lines and uniqueness
