Mary Marino is wrapped in jewels in her feature on Baristanet; "Never to many jewels" she proclaims on Twitter, I agree! I commented on the blog entry and she invited me to her Pop-Up Shop in Upper Montclair. An enthusiast of hand-crafted, original art, I happily ventured over. My eyes lit up with the array of colors and designs that make up Mary's collection; her pieces range from simple and elegant to colorful and playful; all of them bold. My #silverfoxsister was creating a necklace with a powerful piece of coral when I met her. I was captivated by the design so I returned today and claimed the organically gnarled-shaped "rattlesnake" coral necklace for my own; I feel lucky that I witnessed the hands that created this outstanding statement piece. View Mary's creations on her website FASHionista, where "Each piece of jewelry I make is a meditation." I also have my eyes on her handmade wrap bracelets; they are like none other and are ON SALE! Mary Marino and her FLASHionista line can be found at Wade Maxx Gallery seven days a week from 10:00am - 6:00pm until the end of December.
