Recently I have been doing a lot of custom jewelry for weddings. I have been honored to be able to design jewelry for several fantastic, beautiful celebrations. This was not my initial goal as a designer, but I I have found a poignant, sweetness in this interaction, that is incomparable. Getting married is often one of the most special moments in one's life. It is a time to celebrate giving, and receiving love between to people. It is such an honor, talking to a bride and groom, getting to know them, and then creating unique peices that accentuate the mood of the day.
Side note: Grooms get ready! I am still waiting to design a mala inspired necklace for the groom, and his dudes. Contact me if you want something spiritual, yet out of the ordinary.

Her experiences living in Europe and traveling throughout southeast Asia have deeply impacted her world view, and thus her jewelry designs.

" I have taken bits and pieces of the people, culture, and stories I have witnessed in my life and created Marylambb. My jewelry is literally a work of love, born of my dreams, conceived of my mind, and finally made with my hands. I believe that times are changing, and that style has become a vital way to express ones individuality and beliefs."
