About

My name is Megan and I’m the ladysmith and stained glass artist behind MV Handmade Designs.

I have always admired the art of hand forged metal. I began my metalsmith journey in June of 2018, researching tools, how-to's, and even took a weekend course at Creative Side Jewlery Academy in Austin. Other than that, I’m completely self taught.

More recently, I've picked up the art of Stained Glass. Much like my journey with metalsmithing, I'm completely self taught.
I've found that there are a lot of similarities between metalsmithing and glass art, and I'm having a blast exploring and creating more every day!

Working with my hands comes naturally to me, and I didn’t want to settle for one trade. I wanted to build a place where I could combine my love for metalsmithing, stained glass, and passion for creating. 

Thus, MV Handmade Designs was born.

This is a one-woman shop. Every piece is 100% hand made by me in my at-home studio in Austin, TX. I appreciate your patience, understanding, and support!
