Artist Statement

Mary Christou
Mary Christou

Mary Christou began creating out of a love of beautiful materials and design, and of handwork.  She has several years’ experience making jewelry, as well as nurturing many other skills, such as clay work, sewing, embroidery, and crochet.  A passionate gardener and reader, she takes her inspiration mainly from nature, as well as tales of fantasy and science fiction.

Mary takes pride in doing high-quality work with exceptional materials, and rarely duplicates a piece. She enjoys interpreting the visions of her clients, often making jewelry from their heirloom or found items. All her pieces are individually handcrafted. She specializes in wire art jewelry and bridal adornments. Her work is carried in stores in Boca Raton and Deerfield Beach, and in Artisans on the Ave gallery in Lake Worth, Florida.

Mary has been teaching for seven years now, in stores and in her studio in Boca Raton. She loves empowering others to express themselves through the work of their hands.
