About the Designer

Hi there, my name is Marilyn Dannehower, and I live in Santa Barbara, California.  Most of my life I was told that I could not earn a living as an artist, so I spent years in Sales Management and Marketing.  It was a great career, but I knew I had to try to create something of my own.

In 2000 I launched my first jewelry business, MAD Dreams Designs (www.maddreams.net). It’s been amazing!  My work has been  in Red Envelope Catalog, The Chicago Architecture Institute’s Gift Shops and in dozens of shops and galleries all across the US.  I’ve always had a special section of my website for bridal jewelry, and have been featured in many Bridal Salons.

In January of 2007 I decided that I’d like to work more with brides.  It seems that most other businesses market to brides because they believe that there is such a HUGE margin to be made.  Brides will pay top dollar to buy the best, right? 

My goal is to let brides purchase Handcrafted bridal jewelry and Custom bridesmaid gifts for their weddings at the lowest price available to anyone, including the salons.

Have fun looking through the site, I welcome you to email or call me with your ideas.  I’ve had many women send me photographs of styles they love, but simply do not want to pay $100-$200 for the pieces in the salons.

What a wonderful way to say thank you to your bridesmaids who are helping make your day special.  Give them a gift they will cherish forever and remember your day together.

I look forward to hearing from you!

I received the jewelry today. The pieces were even more elegant and beautiful than I had imagined. I am so very happy.

Just wanted to thank you so much for the fine work and for the quick response. I am sure that I will have more orders in the future and next time I will allow more time.
Thanks so much again.
