Have you ever wondered about the people who made your favorite mug, shirt or chair? In Why Do We Have Things? Rita Mehta of The American Edit and Erin Husted of Hackwith Design House interview the independent designers, artists, small business owners and creatives behind our favorite things.
Today’s guest is Mary MacGill, an incredible jewelry designer who makes her entire collection by hand in her studio in New York. Mary and Rita talk about the insight that led her to find a new way to make jewelry, the places and art that inspire her collection, and about finding different ways to be creative as your business grows.
