Mary Filapek + Lou Ann Townsend Construct a Brooch


We create elegant modern jewelry that’s fun to wear. Our design sensibility is heavily influenced by a mid-century modern aesthetic. Crisp, strong lines, clean color and a relationship to the universe and its machinations, infused throughout with a sense of joy and hope are the guiding principles for what we create. Our choice of materials include sterling silver, 24K gold, powdercoated base metals, polymer clay and semi-precious stones. We are interested in the interplay of contemporary and traditional jewelry materials and love to play with notions of preciousness.

Our work is born from a collaboration that is always evolving in its details. We thrive on the development of work through the constant exchange of ideas and the challenge of allowing each other the freedom to explore our passions while remaining true to the perpetually growing vision of our joint body of work.
