My name is Molly and I'm the owner, designer, and maker of Unique Art Pendants - Cool Jewelry and Gifts. I'm a mother of two and married to an amazing man, Mike. We live right outside Minneapolis, MN, USA.
I created Unique Art Pendants - Cool Jewelry and Gifts in May of 2008.
I liked the idea of being able to tell a visual story or evoking personal memories with just one image. I began creating jewelry and gifts using personal photos and drawings, as well as turn of the century illustrations, vintage designs, and heartwarming retro images from the public domain. Within a short time my business and creations received a nod from one of the top modern art museums in the USA, The Walker Art Center. I was featured during several mart events at the Walker Art Center showcasing Minnesota's creativity as well as selling my items in their gift shop.
Museum shop interest grew worldwide and my items have been sold in Harvard Museum of Natural History, Yale Center for British Art, The Bell Museum of Natural History, Mill City Museum, Weisman Art Museum, The Art Gallery of Ontario, and The Minneapolis Institute of Arts. I also have created custom bracelets for the famed Guthrie Theater's gift shop to coincide with what plays are showing. I have been featured in several magazines and sell to many boutiques and galleries worldwide.
(I sell wholesale as well. Retailers - if you are interested in carrying my items in your shop please contact me for wholesale directions.)
I've always thought life should be filled with beauty, laughter, and creativity. Many of my lovingly odd and whimsical items reflect that outlook.
I thought I'd share with you some other cool things that have happened with my business so far. (Many are due to selling here on Etsy!)
I get to sell my creations to wonderful people such as yourself. YAY!
I'm honored and thrilled to be able to say I have sold over 16,000 items here on Etsy.

I've created around 20+ custom cuff bracelet designs for the Guthrie Store located inside the famed Guthrie Theater. The Guthrie has been called "A 21st century dream factory" by Time Magazine.
I was featured by Minnesota Public Radio - MPR State of the Arts with Marianne Combs.
I created a custom merch necklace for Dessa. Minneapolis rapper, singer, spoken word artist, writer, and hip-hop member of the Doomtree collective.
I've made a ton of really cool friends through the Etsy community.
