California native Maryann Peper-Reynolds has a delightful range of crafted items in her shop, GabriellaDesign - paper flowers, moody abstract paintings, holiday cards, skull and gemstone jewelry offer something of interest for all seekers. She claims to be addicted to paper, and her creations involve paper in many forms. The bright red paper ranunculus she makes are quite eye-catching, and her desk calendars are quite popular!

Needing a pair of earrings to go with a shirt she planned to wear, young Maryann made some earrings - and quickly began making more to go with her outfits and give to friends. She hasn't stopped since, working in different mediums over the years.

While her heart might be in Florence, Maryann loves the time spent with family and friends during the holidays. "Giving a piece of yourself embodies the holidays," she says. This might mean some time, cookies, and/or a good dinner. A good bottle of wine brightens the occasion, and she claims chardonnay as her favorite.
