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.”
Flowers, butterflies, and dragonflies and bees necklace is accented with pastel blue hand painted enamel, turquoise cabochons, and indicolite and aurora borealis Swarovski Crystals. Made with American lead free pewter. 18" long with a 3" extension. Center flower is almost 2.5" diameter. The assorted flowers inhabit 9" of the necklace length.
