MEET DESIGNER AND MAKER,
Hello and welcome to Juvelarto Designs! I'm Margaret, the designer and maker of Juvelarto Designs.
I grew up in the vibrant valleys of Tucson, Arizona, soaking in the environment of the opalescent sunsets, monsoon aromas, the sweltering golden heat of summer and Mexican food so satisfying, you forget about that heat!
I pursued ceramic sculpture and metalsmithing in my drawn-out college years and have roamed around the country from Oregon to NYC to make a living in this industry. I have designed and produced work for jewelry companies, large and small, carried by Nieman Marcus, Nordstrom, Anthropologie and Sundance Catalog.
Now that I have returned home of Tucson, I'm seeing how all these moments and experiences have led up to the creation of Juvelarto Designs. I have found a great sense of freedom, fulfillment and responsibility in designing collections of my own and owing my own business.
The styles coming from Juvelarto Designs are pieces that reflect my love for metal and appreciation for the Sonoran Desert. Each piece is designed and handmade by me.
All Juvelarto Designs are meant to bring great joy to the wearer!
