Mary Ann McNeil, owner of DeZigns By M, is a second career entrepreneur who has always been passionate about fashion design. More specifically, she enjoys accessorizing outfits with unique jewelry. It is her passion that has led her to start-up her own jewelry design business. As you will discover from the jewelry and scarves for sale in the gift shop at the Buchanan Center for the Arts, her diversity of designs varies enough to accommodate the most conservative to the most exotic outfits. The slides/pendants are one-of-a-kind, and all of the button earrings have a slide to go with them when they were created. For many years, Mary Ann has been involved with art and design for both business and pleasure, and their history and development. Multiple artists and designers inspired her to start, to be creative, and to develop her skills. She uses different techniques and creates her own as well.
