“Colorful, juicy, mouth-watering, playful and sensual” are some of the words women have used to describe Mallary Marks’ jewelry. While the metal-work patterns she creates are captivating in themselves, from Tibetan Lace to beaded latticework, the brilliant gemstones are the show.
Mallary has a passion for searching the world over for inspiration. She then uses her ability to marry precious, semiprecious, transparent and opaque gemstones into striking and unusual color compositions. Stones such as multi-colored sapphires, lapis, diamonds, chrysophrase, orange garnets, agates and emeralds are joined with intricate patterns of pure gold distinguishing each handmade piece with thoughtfulness and authenticity.
