About the Artist
Marie Archuleta
 
Marie’s Jewels
Background:
As a child Marie Archuleta had an acute fascination with rocks and beads, collecting them whenever the opportunity presented itself, and she loved to make bead jewelry for friends and family. Marie initially studied the silversmith craft to repair her own jewelry, but soon could not resist the bug to create new pieces. Along with a fascination for Native American silver jewelry and more than a casual interest in precious metals in general, she has combined working in silver, copper and brass with her love for the natural colors and textures of rough and polished stone.

Marie also works textiles through a vintage Singer sewing machine from the 40s, crafting handmade, beaded handbags and other fashion accessories. Her use of old buttons and other found’ items for clasps and detailing gives these modern items just a hint of decades past.
 
Artist Statement:
"When I fall in love with a piece of jewelry it usually is not what one would call perfect, Marie states. I like pieces that have look of being handmade by a craftsperson. The contrast between polished metal and more rustic items like natural stone seems to be a formula that works for her. I'm always a little surprised when I hear from customers who have received compliments when wearing my work. I just make what I like. "

Technique:
All of Marie’s jewelry is handmade using sterling silver, copper, brass and natural stones, glass and ceramic. Each piece is unique and one of a kind.

trouble with order but Beautiful Earrings! March 19, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from austin, TX United States  
These earrings are gorgeous! I bought them for a coworker - instead of flowers or the usual office deliveries. I ordered two pairs of earrings, each from a different artist, each for different coworkers. Since I paid one shipping fee, I thought they would arrive together, but they didn't. Learning experience, but the product is excellent and I love supporting individual artists.
