About the Artisan
After graduating with honors from the Virginia Tech College of Architecture and Urban Studies with a BS in Industrial Design, Colleen Mauer settled on the west coast and began working at a small furniture design company in Oakland, California.
Deciding to change course and follow a dream of traveling the globe - she spent extensive time in Asia and those vivid experiences inspired her to take her passion for design to the next level. Flash forward nearly 12 years, and jewelry has become a part of her daily routine; it is the source of her inspiration.
The CMD Studio & Showroom is located in the bustling Mission District of San Francisco. They have recently expanded and now also have a full-fledged production studio in upstate New York. Their team of eight is amazing, empowering—and growing!
"I use texture, color, sounds and tones as my tools for transforming a simple section of material into a unique piece of jewelry. My designs celebrate clean geometries and effortless angles. I love creating collections that complement any style, from casual and everyday to chic to timeless." - Colleen Mauer
