Growing up, and still residing, on the shores of Cape Cod, Massachusetts I am constantly surrounded by inspiration. From the driftwood scattered about the beach to the seaweed floating gracefully in the bay, the textures of the natural world in my every day life have started to heavily influence my designs.
I have a love for creating one of a kind pieces and I find inspiration within the stones. I carefully choose every stone with intention and I hope the eventual wearer of the piece connects with the stone as much as I do.
I began creating jewelry over a decade ago. I fell in love with metalsmithing and jewelry design when I was in my early teenage years at Nauset High School under the guidance of Jody Craven. I earned various awards for my designs and went on to take more metals classes after I graduated high school as well as keeping a small home studio. However, it wasn't until 2012 after receiving a diploma from The Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco, CA. that I honed in my skills and designs. When I returned to Cape Cod I launched Molly Avellar Jewelry.
In 2015 I teamed up with my mother, Jenny Joy Avellar, and opened a brick and mortar shop in East Orleans, MA called Adorn. I handcraft every piece of my jewelry in my studio which resides in the shop.
When I am not in my studio or helping my mother run our shop I love to spend time with my dog Nala and go for walks on my local beaches and woodland trails.
