MALLARY MARKS has a passion for searching the world over for inspiration. Her ability to combine sapphires, rubies, beryl, tourmalines, emeralds, aquamarines and lapis with intricate delicate patterns of high carat gold distinguishes her work. Each piece is handmade and completely one-of-a-kind. Mallary Marks opened her studio at the tender age of twenty-four, after graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design.
Heavily influenced by her "heroes", from Alexander Calder to Odilon Redon and Henri Matisse, Marks creates every piece by hand, and takes much of her inspiration from the world around her. Insects, photographs, architecture and ancient and indigenous crafts she has collected from Europe to Africa have all been referenced in various collections.
