Commissions Galore

While I was busy completing my Hexaptych I also received a few custom jewelry orders. For a friend’s 14th wedding anniversary I was given a specific lyric and asked to add the iconic lightning bolt to the pendant referencing the Grateful Dead. Because this was a remote order, I took a photo showing the size […]

Sparkles at Ayla’s Bead Bazaar

September closed out with a pop-up at Ayla’s Fall Bead Bazaar. I had perused the bazaar last year and was thrilled to be one of the vendors this year. What’s not to like about being surrounded by sparkles and beauty? Last year’s Pyrite strand made it into a set. I paired it with my Desigual […]

Bead Bazaar on Sunday

It’s back to back art fair time! On Sunday, September 27, I will be setting up shop in the Highland Art Park Center, where Ayla’s Originals is hosting its Fall Bead Bazaar. I’ve perused Ayla’s Wonderful World of Beads on numerous occasions and am thrilled to be part of the vendor line-up this year. Seventeen […]

Summer Selfies

It’s time for some Summer Selfies as I process numerous photos from my August travels. The Yellow Agate Set visited a few stores this quarter while the pink flower wax and wire pendant was admired during NEW’s recent Meet & Munch. I paired it with infinity earrings. in May I wore various Mother’s Day Pendants […]

A Mother’s Day Bangle

When I was in grad school I would drive off to Sedona to get away from the books and learned about vortexes and crystal healing. I don’t think I actually experienced a Vortex, but I did obtain a copy of Melody’s Love is in the Earth and started looking into crystal healing. I’ve enjoyed enhancing […]

Etsy Refresh

Valentine’s Day is coming up so it is time to review my jewelry inventory. With 238 pieces of jewelry in stock that is more time consuming than anticipated. I’m pleased to see that only one pendant has gone missing after packing and repacking items for multiple locations at least 10 times this past year. Deleting […]

Post-Fair Gratitude

Well my holiday fairs are over and I am so flattered and honored at the reactions my pieces garnered. It is lovely to be complimented on my wire-bending skills, and to have people purchase pieces to give to their loved ones. Knowing the quotes and songs touch people’s hearts and have meaning to them makes […]

Maraviglia at the Winter EXPO

This weekend I dropped off 70 pieces for the 12th Annual Winter Arts & Crafts EXPO at the Evanston Art Center. It was a veritable tagging fest the night before. The EXPO opens on Friday evening and will be open to the public Monday through Saturday 10 am to 4 pm and Sundays 12 pm […]

New pendants for dibs

I made a few new pendants this month that I almost do not want to part with. The studio has been shiny and bright, luring me in. Someone posted Isaiah 55:12 in a piece of their work, so I went to my art Bible and ripped that page out for a pendant. Don’t you love […]

Maike’s Maraviglia out and about

I’ve been enjoying the weather and nature so much that promoting my jewelry has been backburnered a bit. But you’ll see me wear and can peruse fun pieces at NEW’s Crain’s Small Business Week Event on Wednesday. My Chakra Bangle and Twinsy Dancing Spirals are with me most often. The Morpho Butterfly wax and wire […]
