Sage & Stone Artisan Jewelry Designs by Mariana Wilson
Sage & Stone Designs – You can find the beautiful, creative and inspired Jewelry of Mariana Wilson on the www.HelloBeautifulLadies.com home page under the Shop button. My passion for jewelry making started as a young girl. My mother had a small ornate tin that housed loose turquoise and sterling beads from broken jewelry. I was so fascinated with the potential of those beads that I took apart some of my own jewelry and with those turquoise and silver beads I made something entirely new. And that was the seed that grew my passion to find beauty and purpose, or repurpose, in discarded items. That love and eye for thinking abstractly have been a constant in my growth as a person as well as an artist.
The clarity that I feel when consumed by the beauty of the outdoors is my eternal source of inspiration. From this, my palette comes to life in the form of semi-precious and precious gemstones, raw gems that I have collected and drilled, feathers, river stones, leather, porcupine quills, bullet casings, repurposed metal, wood, shells and anything else that nature delivers as an inspiration.
I offer quality handcrafted pieces that are simply beautiful, artfully designed, and unique. I am passionate about finding balance with each piece and witnessing the partnership of new designs. Every new creation is made with joy, and I sincerely hope that joy is felt and carried by the wearer.
