Welcome to Marilee Originals and a wonderful world of artisan, one of a kind handcrafted metal jewelry! I appreciate differences and love creating and wearing unique handcrafted pieces. Working primarily in sterling silver, fine silver, copper and bronze, I enjoy transforming the metal through various techniques.
My hope is that the wearer will appreciate the design and craftsmanship, and most of all, experience joy each time the piece is worn.
Within the United States alone, there are millions of children and youth who are homeless. With a background in public health and education, and as a jewelry artist and metalsmith, I have combined my passions in creating the Shiny Loops jewelry line. We aim to sell purposeful and unique jewelry while raising awareness of the plight of homeless children and to raise funds to help. Each piece is specially handmade and meaningful, and part of proceeds will be donated to organizations helping homeless youth. Shine for Kids.
