Welcome to my jewelry shop! My name is Jessica (but I usually go by Jess), and I am the designer of the wonderful adornments you see here. I have been creating jewelry for 7 years now and decided to launch a Zibbet site.
Marvidrio is a fusion of two Spanish words: "mar" meaning the sea and "vidrio" meaning glass. Why these terms, you ask? I have a strong affinity for the ocean, and I used glass beads for my first jewelry projects. I absolutely LOVE designing and hand crafting jewelry in my spare time. It's a great escape from my busy life. Nature, especially the ocean, is my main source of inspiration for my work. The possibilities of designing jewelry are as endless as the sea. I began designing jewelry when I wanted to closely match an outfit or wear something that was one of a kind. I then discovered how incredibly appealing and satisfying it was to design and handcraft jewelry. If I could, I would bead AALLL day:) Once I began to make my own pieces, friends and family began requesting custom made items. The next thing I knew, I began beading more and more and put up a shop due to suggestions from others. And here I am!
I was born and raised in South Florida but am currently living in Gaithersburg, MD. I do miss the palm trees and beaches, but I am getting used to the climate in Maryland (noooooooooooooooo!). However, experiencing all four seasons is a plus (although I do not like snow..or ice...or anything that makes me feel cold:) ).
Aside from designing jewelry, I'm also a software engineer and the mom of a beautiful baby boy. Being a mom is one of the best things in life. My son actually helps spark my creativity, especially when we read together. He's such a joy and brings a lot of light in my life (as does my loving husband, whom I refer to as my sun in Spanish:) ).
I have to say I am thankful to possess the gift of creativity and am excited to share it all with you. I truly appreciate your time in perusing my shop and hope you enjoy what you see!
