Made by Maggie Jewelry Designs Giveaway!


I love jewelry as all of you may well know and I love discovering cool and talented artists who really take pride in what they make. When you buy products that are handmade as opposed to things that are mass produced you can feel the great time and effort and not to mention the love that each artist puts into it. I was so glad when I got the chance to do a review and giveaway for Made by Maggie Jewelry Designs.


Made by Maggie is the store that is run by the lovely Maggie who hand makes each design by hand! Maggie is a stay at home mom who is situated in St. Louis and she loves to design! She has amazing jewelry designs and she mainly makes earrings and necklaces. I love her necklaces because they all have many charms on it and each charm adds a unique flair to the piece of jewelry.


Maggie has a lot of options such as her monogrammed line which features the cutest charms with a twist. She also specializes in jewelry for your wedding or for your bridesmaids which is perfect since wedding season is almost upon us. Maggie is very flexible and easy to work with and if you have a certain design in mind and it is not currently in stock in her etsy shop, Maggie is more than willing to work alongside you in order to bring your vision to life.



Let's get to know Maggie better through an interview:

Name: Maggie Matusofsky
Name of shop: Made by Maggie Jewelry Designs
Location: Saint Louis, Missouri
Favorite item from your shop: At the moment, it’s the PRETTY PEONIES DANGLES. Love them!

Tell us a little bit about yourself: I’m a stay at home mom to a fantastically fun 2 year old boy named Sam. I also work part time here and there as a Pediatric Audiologist J So…not only do I know a lot about ears, I love to decorate them! I have always been crafty, but recently discovered a passion for jewelry design and can’t seem to stop. I am having so much fun!

What do you consider to be your greatest accomplishment? My little boy.
When and what made you want to open up your shop? I started crafting with some girl friends last fall that knit and scrapbook, and I would always bring my latest random projects with me to those nights. One night, I brought out my jewelry tools and some beads and it just felt so right, I had found my craft! These girls are actually the ones who introduced me to Etsy.com and I fell in love with all the artists and amazing work on there. I thought, “Hmmm, maybe I’ll just put a few designs up and see what happens”. The rest is history!

Tell us a little bit more about your creation process: Most of my design ideas happen first in my head while I’m lying in bed. I get to put these ideas into motion whenever the babe is sleeping, so it’s nap time and late night that you’ll find me in my studio.

Where do you draw inspiration for all your amazing designs? I am so inspired to keep designing when I get compliments on my jewelry designs or someone leaves a sweet comment in the feedback on Etsy about their latest purchase. It makes me so happy when people love their Made by Maggie designs.

If you could be an animal what would you be and why? A sea turtle. How fun that would be to ride currents and float around all day long in the deep blue sea.

If you could have one super power what would it be and why? Probably to fly. I just think it would be such an amazing feeling. And I’d never be stuck in traffic.



My Review:

Maggie was so sweet to offer me the chance to review an item from her lovely shop. It took me a while to look through her amazing designs before I finally settled on Winter Dreams necklace.

Each piece that you buy comes lovingly wrapped in a giftbox so that it is ready to be wrapped up and presented to your very lucky recipient. Shipping was quick considering I live in Canada and everything arrived in one piece.


So the lovely necklace features a silver hammered ring that is hangs from a very delicate silver necklace. And from this ring hangs a jumble of charms that includes: a briolette shaped clear Swarovski Crystal, small freshwater pearl, turquoise stone, lavender round faceted crystal and tear drop shaped deep purple Swarovski crystal. The clasp is also adorned with a small freshwater pearl dangle.



My favorite charm has to be the clear crystal because it really shines and adds a great focal point to the necklace.
I really love this necklace because of all the fine details that were included in it. The camera really can't capture the sparkle of the crystals because they sparkle like crazy! I love the length of this necklace because it's just the right length and not too long! I hate when necklaces are too long because then they often get covered by the clothes that I wear! This necklace does not have this problem and I have gotten many compliments on how great it is!


You can also visit Maggie over at her blog where she has lots of great giveaways and discount codes!!!
