Owner Marlene Knappman, first began designing and marketing her handmade jewelry creations in 1998. Through her interest in holistic energy healing and Reiki, Marlene became intrigued by the healing energies emitted by natural, semi-precious gems and crystals. With this in mind, she began designing bracelets, necklaces, anklets, and earrings as a fashionable means to benefit from the therapeutic properties of the stones.

The store, Studio M Designs Jewelry & Accessories, opened its doors in 2004 and has since expanded its merchandise exponentially! The Studio’s ever-growing collections appeal to all tastes and styles - classic, contemporary, and chic.
