Meet the Maker: Molly M Designs

Molly McGrath is the creative mind behind Molly M Designs. She trained professionally as an architect, and after using a laser cutter to make architectural models, recognized its unique potential to make jewelry and other objects. Her approach to design is heavily influenced by her background in architecture—a synthesis of concept, form, material, details, connections, and use.
