Meet the Artist

Hi my name is Maribel, I am a mother, daughter, sister and a self-taught jewelry designer. From a very young age I have had a long time passion for Arts & Crafts. Through out the years I have tried a multitude of crafts from sewing, crocheting, knitting to even building wood furniture. And while I still do a variety of crafts my passion has become jewelry designing.

Designing jewelry started as a hobby as a way to unwind after a stressful day working in New York’s hectic corporate world. With the encouragement and support of my son and family…I opened my Etsy shop “BeadingOwl“.

My Dream: To one day leave behind the corporate world and dedicated myself to designing jewelry.

I started designing jewelry sitting at my dining room table with a few craft books and a handful of beads purchased at my local Arts and Craft store. Before I knew it my collection of beads, charms and books started to grow. Now I design my jewelry at a desk I specifically built to designed.
