CMD is a jewelry design company founded by industrial designer Colleen Mauer in 2005. Each piece in the CMD collection is handcrafted by a small team of jewelry artisans in Colleen’s storefront and studio on Valencia Street in the Mission District of San Francisco. Colleen designs using texture, color, sounds and tones as tools to transform simple materials into unique pieces of jewelry. Colleen’s work celebrates simple geometries and organic forms, accented by her signature wire-wrapped detailing. CMD jewelry can complement any look, from everyday to modern and chic. Racked, San Francisco Chronicle, NBC Bay Area, DesignMilk, and more have all highlighted the designer’s work. Colleen Mauer Designs was named Best Local Designer in the San Francisco Bay Guardian, Best of the Bay 2010 Readers Poll.
