Spending a childhood's worth of afternoons stringing pearls and practicing beadwork at her mom's jewelry store had quite the impact on Maddie. In fact, she thanks her mom daily for giving her the chance to explore jewelry making at such a young age. That curiosity continued well on into her adult years, when a metalworking class struck a chord with the jeweler. In fact, that's now her medium of choice. Maddie experiments with all sorts of materials to create unexpected pieces, each precisely designed and inspired by the thoughts that hit her right before she falls asleep.
