Mary DeMarco-Wolfe / La Contessa

jewelry / non precious

Hometown: Baltimore, MD

Artist Website

After graduating from Towson State University in Baltimore, Maryland, with a degree in fine arts and then studying in Florence, Italy, Mary started her business with her husband, Buddy Wolfe, in 1986. Mary believes her artistic calling comes to her honestly from her grandfather, who was a jeweler and watchmaker in East Baltimore. The name La Contessa, which means “the countess” in Italian, is her way of honoring her Italian heritage. Mary finds inspiration from many sources, from traveling abroad, to visiting museums, to gardening, to cooking, to taking nature hikes. 

“At La Contessa, we pride ourselves on American made and being a locally owned business,” said Mary. “And we love to give back to the community.” La Contessa was host of a jewelry-making party for the Creative Alliance of Baltimore and the owners continuously make donations to local charities for fundraisers. Mary added, “With so many jobs lost to overseas companies, we can say we are still doing it here, in the U.S., with pride.”

Hometown: Lansdale, PA

Artist Website

Love typography? Then you’ll adore Daniel Duffy’s Philly Word Art. Duffy offers a unique take on Philadelphia’s local culture and national sports icons that incorporates the use of meaningful and attractive text into the design. The words used to create each bring added depth to the work’s significance. Meanwhile, the text also serves to act as part of the design itself by adding texture and color in unique and creative ways. By using the elements of typography, Duffy has developed a creative way to memorialize everything from athletes to musicians to locations.

Sports fans are especially drawn to Daniel Duffy’s Philly Word Art. However, there are other beautiful works that will appeal to other interests, including travelers, animal lovers, history buffs, music appreciators and more. See Duffy’s detailed and engrossing works up close and meet the artist himself at a Sugarloaf Craft Festival near you.
