Dallas Maynard studied gemology and jewelry manufacturing arts at The Gemological Institute of America in Carlsbad, CA. Dallas’ jewelry is inspired by the organic beauty, magic and mystery found in nature. Her creations are rooted in the fundamental notion that every piece of jewelry should evoke its own purpose, meaning and intention — a sentimental ornament to adorn those seeking a deeper connection to the universe and those who reside in it. Dallas Maynard jewelry is designed and crafted by Dallas in her Chicago studio in the Lillstreet Art Center. Dallas hand-picks each stone for every piece of jewelry she creates and uses ethically sourced stones and up-cycled metals.
