Good Golly, Miss Mollie!

In the spirit of connecting Etsy-world and the real world, I thought it would be fun to share some people and places from Maine that I first found on Etsy but have met or experienced in person.  Introducing a new weekly series called Monday Maine-ia!

My first feature is about a person who, appropriately, is a self-proclaimed “Monday” person, always eager and ready to jump into the new week…my dear, sweet friend, Mollie Meserve of Rough Magic Creations (and Rough Magic Holidays, and  Rough Magicals).

I first “met” Mollie on the Etsy Maine Team, but I got to know her better when we decided to partner up during Etsy’s Holiday Boot Camp.  Mollie is the kind of person who, regardless of age, is young at heart.  When she’s in the room (even the virtual room), everyone feels a little happier!

And she’s an amazing copper-smith and jeweler.  With Etsy so full of great jewelry, it takes a true artist to be able to stand out in the crowd, and Miss Mollie, in my humble opinion, stands head and shoulders above the crowd.  I love how she combines the colors and textures of various metals and stones.  And I’m pretty sure she makes all of her own findings.  Now that’s one-of-a-kind!

The first time I met her in person was at a team-sponsored craft fair.  Mollie didn’t participate as a vendor, but she made the long trip from Down East just to meet the rest of us.  The minute I saw her I ran over and gave her a big hug, and got an even BIGGER hug in return!

Oh, and Mollie is the creator of my most favorite pair of earrings:

I wear these almost every day…they go great with all my outfits!

Mollie is also a super star at creating Etsy Treasuries.  She’s challenged herself to make at least one treasury for every day of this year.  Wow!  That’s a lot of treasuries!  And she’s so good at it, too!  You can find all of Mollie’s treasuries here.  I hope you take the time to check them out; they are works of art in and of themselves!

So, there you have it, my first feature of the beauty of Maine on Etsy.  There is so much more to share…hope you’ll join me next time!
