C O M F O R TA B L E & S T Y L I S H W E A R A B L E A R T MAE WEARABLE ART conceptualized over the love of vintage costume jewelry, but understanding the lack of functionality and overall wear – some of the styles (specifically earrings) hurt! After years in Corporate Sales and Marketing, Margaret Mewborn or “Mae” decided to switch her focus from technology to jewelry – something she had only worn, never made. Her strong determination to find a way to capture the elegant style of generations past while working with materials that are unbelievably light in nature created something comfortable and stylish for all women – it created MAE Wearable Art. After discovering her creative gene at a relatively young age, Mae likes to joke that art and fashion have finally found a suitable place in her adult life outside of adorning a wall or her closet. The inspiration behind the original collection emerged from a pair of clip-on earrings that were given to her from her grandmother’s costume jewelry collection. This specific pair of “button” earrings attended many wonderful events, but the consistent, uncomfortable pinch caused Mae to dig deeper and find a solution. Since the launch in November 2018, the “button” earring has transformed to over 60 different styles and color combinations – all handmade.
Mae resides in Atlanta with her husband Patrick, daughter Anne Helen and adorable pup, Bryant. www.wearmae.com, firstname.lastname@example.org Instagram: MAEWearableArt

After becoming the black sheep in the family (I was the only female that pursued soccer rather than eventing), it is funny to see the horse world come full circle. I knew there would be a way my grandmother (Nancy Gosch) would have her hand in steering me back to shows somehow. And boy has it been a blast as an on-looking vendor at shows! –Mae
