Mary Hurst has been creating and selling her original jewelry to stores and galleries for over nine years. She was born and raised in County Tipperary, Ireland. Although she has lived in the United States for years, Mary returns to Ireland every year to visit her family and to get inspiration for her jewelry designs. She now lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and a bossy cat!
Mary’s Celtic Jewelry harks back to ancient traditions but is designed for today. Since each necklace is original, each one takes on a distinct personality and the naming process is almost mystical.
According to the artist, “The names I choose for my jewelry becomes an integral part of each piece and the spirit of the name becomes a part of the wearing experience. I send a piece of my culture, my heart and my soul out with each piece of jewelry.”
