Maggie S

Maggie grew up in Missouri and Illinois. After graduating with a BA in English, Maggie eventually found her way to New York. Surviving the layoffs and grueling hours of an investment bank during the financial meltdown was enough to make Maggie quit and go back to school. This time, she followed her creative spirit and studied jewelry design. Maggie and her husband welcomed their daughter Ele {July 2013} and moved their little family from the city to the suburbs of Westchester. In Westchester Maggie was irrepressible, opening her jewelry design boutique, Alice & Chains Jewelry; she founded a Chamber of Commerce; blogged for Westchester County Moms Blog as well as started her own running blog to combat local pedestrian safety issues. Then in typical fashion, life happened - Maggie’s husband was offered a job in Houston. Maggie fuels herself on chocolate, decaf, and old school gangster rap. If it happens to be a sunny afternoon you can find Maggie working outside on her laptop alongside with her bossy dachshund Lexxie {November 2003} and her family’s newest addition, a Rhodesian Ridgeback Masha {November 2018}. You can follow Maggie on Facebook and Instagram @aliceandchainsjewelry.
