Vintaj Educator, Mackie Mullane – Inspired by the beauty of the people and cultures of the world Mackie Mullane shows her love of the earth through her eclectic and bohemian design sense. Her passion for art and jewelry design was ingrained in her at an early age. Growing up playing and creating in her mother’s design studio with the constant influence of art and inspiration has shaped her into the person she is today. Her education in the arts of fashion, textiles, photography, design, pottery, painting and illustration forms her creative foundation. Mackie brings balance and proportion to her designs, a knowledge of color and a unique understanding of how jewelry complements personal style.

Mackie loves sharing her natural gift through education. She is a designer and educator for Vintaj, teaching several workshops each year and contributing to the Vintaj blog, sharing designer tips and video tutorials. Mackie is also the Lead Designer for Vintaj Earth Jewelry Boutique and a featured designer and demonstrator for Sizzix and Ranger. Mackie enjoys spending her time studying trends in fashion and photography, creating boards on Pinterest, exploring nature and, of course, designing jewelry. She plans to immerse herself in travel and continue to learn about art and culture.
