Based in her hometown of Orlando, Marion Fague-Bass grew up surrounded by the arts, and dabbled in various media. She hit upon her true love of jewelry-making around 2006 when her children were old enough to allow her time to devote to herself. Beginning with beadwork and wire-wrapping, she soon progressed to silversmithing. After ten years at the torch, she took a side step into precious metal clay and discovered a whole new world. She combined a visit with her UK-based son with an Art Clay Certification course, and earned her Level II certification in the UK, which was then granted Senior Instructor certification in the US. She continues to hone her skills in both fabrication and metal clay, and loves to combine both mediums along with beading and wire-wrapping. A retired high school teacher, she has not been able to leave the classroom, and now teaches both fabrication and metal clay at the historic Maitland Art Center near Orlando.

A native Floridian, Marion’s love of the sea and nature is evident in her work. She often features very unique and natural stones with organic shapes and textures. Many of her pieces are recreations of actual items found in the wild, or representations. Her dedication to the environment is evident in her lines of “urban archeology” found object jewelry, and “donation station” pieces that include donations to various environmental organizations.
