Miami-based designer Mary Louise crafts her earrings, necklaces, and other stunning pieces from Bali beads dipped in 22-karat yellow, white, and rose gold. This is her signature style move since developing her jewelry line in 1994 and is one that bodes well for anyone who loves to layer their jewelry. Golden nuggets, diamonds, cubic zirconia pave pendants, South Sea pearls, and precious gemstones are featured prominently in Mary Louise Designs. These handmade collections have a distinct romantic feel that appeals to women of every age.
Influenced at a young age by family gifts of jewelry brought back from the gold markets in Lebanon, Mary Louise has always had a passion for exquisite jewelry. From the baroque pearls from China, precious stones from India, precious metals from Instabul, or the druzys from Brazil, Mary Louise travels the world to find the highest quality materials for her various collections.
The artist’s college education in fashion design and experience in retail management has been a vital part of her success. The spiritual flavor of her style comes from her lifetime commitment to Yoga and her studies of the Dali Lama.
