In her Metalsmithing studio, just north of Boston, Jewelry Artist Molly Phillips, infuses bold designs, with a modern sensibility to create unique handcrafted pieces constructed from Sterling Silver, Gold and copper, often featuring some of Mother Nature’s most beautiful semi precious stones.
Originally trained as a graphic designer, Molly discovered metalwork by accident while earning a BFA at SUNY Oswego in upstate NY. There she enrolled in a random elective class called, “Silversmithing & Jewelry Making.” And after opting for a second class — a love of moving metal was born. She continued with her graphics degree, landing in Boston as an Advertising Art Director all the while finding time to escape the hectic pace of her job by indulging in her passion for metalwork. Through weekly adult education classes she honed her skills and now, after almost 20 years, she’s turned this lifelong hobby and love of jewelry into her second act, the inception of Morrison Mae Studio.
Molly makes her home here in Melrose with her husband and their two daughters.
