Rosemary Mifsud grew up in Sturgis, Michigan, a small town with a population of 11,000 spread out in an area of roughly 6 square miles. “I was rooted in this safe, solid, simple, peaceful place; I didn’t just have to go, I could go. And that became a metaphor for my work and for what I hope my work brings to people.”
Rosemary attended Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan where she currently resides. She has merged her love of nature and art into The Story of Two, a website where she creates custom wedding jewelry.
Besides her beautiful jewelry, she is also a contributing furniture designer for PieterVanTuyl. Her jewelry can be found online at her Etsy site as well as on Facebook at The Story of Two: Love Jewelry.
