Mary Anne Davis, a long-time resident of Nevada County, has been designing jewelry since she was a child and spent all her allowance at the neighborhood craft store. While her designs have greatly evolved since then, her desire to make something beautiful remains. She uses sterling silver, freshwater pearls, semiprecious stones, turquoise, jasper, pewter and more to make her timeless designs. The name Madison Designs came into play in 2006 when her son (then 14) helped her produce large quantities of jewelry for the Wine Enthusiast Catalog. Her initials are MAD, and her SON helped, so it seemed right to name it Madison Designs.

The Banner Mountain Artisans show is usually the only show each year that Mary Anne does, so come see hundreds of pieces this November!
