About

Sharlene Maher

Stranded Treasures is an original jewelry collection established in 2003 by clay artist and designer Sharlene Maher. Her products convey the beauty and meaning in flowers as wearable accents for all occasions.

After graduating college, Sharlene worked in areas including analytical, financial and creative marketing. In her personal time, she completed studies in aromatherapy and skincare and certification courses at the San Francisco Botanical Gardens. With a special interest in flowers and working with clay, she gradually developed the two into a product line and full time operation. Her professional experience and personal endeavors later proved to be invaluable assets to, and a reflection of, her business. Sharlene enjoy all facets of Stranded Treasures, from product design and marketing to photographing, packaging and customer service.

Sharlene creates all of her products from her home studio in Florida. Her technique involves sculpting each individual petal using a rich blend of color-embedded polymer clays. The jewelry components are assembled by hand and permanently affixed to the flowers. This approach provides many variations to choose from and upholds the artistry of handmade products behind the Stranded Treasures collection.
