With her Italian heritage and having spent time traveling and studying in Italy, Mary decided to trade under the name “La Contessa,” which means “the countess” in English. She formed her studio, DeMarco-Wolfe Limited, in 1986 with her husband, William Wolfe, in Baltimore, Maryland. The studio is located less than one mile from the Maryland Institute of Art jewelry classrooms, where Mary continues to study.
“Whether painting a picture or designing a necklace, the principle is the same,” explains Mary. “You are creating from a specific stimulation. And with jewelry it has to be something special and exciting; my inspiration is nature: animals,leaves, shapes and colors.”
If you are a fan of the owl, then here's a necklace you'll fall in love with. His body is accessorized with light Colorado and aqua crystals. Hand-casted American lead-free pewter. 20" long. Pendant is about 1.25" long and 1.25" wide across the banch. Take a look at the detail photos to see the unique clasping hands closure.
