Handmade in Massachusetts
Marian Ives, a native New Englander, studied art and metal smithing from an early age. Her ornaments are produced on a hundred-year-old, three-ton kick press, using dies hand-cut from tool steel, and hand painted.
To make her keen (and often whimsical) observations of our natural world accessible, she has made several series of unique hand-painted characters. Discerning collectors and those with a gentle eye will enjoy each of these handcrafted creations.
