Samantha

For me, jewelry is a passion. Owning a Colorado-based, fine jewelry boutique has been truly a dream come true. I love that Metalmark has become a go-to boutique for the Highlands community, has become a home for Samantha Louise Jewelry, is an example of entrepreneurship for my children, and has something for everyone.

I am an Indianapolis native, and relishes visits to Lake Wawasee. She obtained her GIA certification while completing her undergraduate from University of San Diego. She has been married to her husband Chris for 10 years, and though she may not admit it, she is a super-mom to her three children, Mia, Charlotte and Will.

What jewelry piece can you not leave the house without? My Totem Cuff. It’s new to my wrist line up, but I am obsessed and I never want to take it off. 

What’s currently on your wishlist? An Elisabeth Bell necklace! I have been test driving a few of her pieces and am thinking about the Pave Thorn, but I might go gemstone. I just love the branch look and I definitely NEED something of hers.

Favorite part of Metalmark? My Mavens. I got pretty lucky with my crew. Each one is a powerhouse boss babe. I am lucky to work beside them every day.

If I'm not at Metalmark you can find me.... I’d like to say in my garden because I love to garden, but the truth is I’m probably in my car. I am in that phase of life where kids' sports dominate so I am often driving then where they need to go!

Favorite part of the custom process? The story. For me jewelry is all about the “why“ and the meaning behind the piece for the client. I savor every moment of hearing someone’s why!

Best addition to an ear stack? Definitely an ear cuff. I am loving the white diamond baguette cuff these days, but just about any cuff can complete your ear stack.

Mary

Mary Leppert is as fluent in the language of jewelry as she is in English. A champion for the culture and language of fine jewelry, Mary loves teaching Metalmark customers about metals, gemstones, custom creations, jewelry designers, jewelry care and more as she shows our designers’ collections, consults on custom Metalmark creations, consults on jewelry repairs, and as she does so much more! Mary loves that Metalmark features a vast but cohesive collection of unique jewelry pieces that fit Denver and Carmel's aesthetic and budget needs in a new way.

Mary is an Indianapolis native and relishes her time in Colorado and Indiana. Like Samantha, she has a love for lake life on Wawasee! Mary graduated from GIA twice, with Graduate Gemologist 2007 and Graduate Jeweler 2015 credentials, before moving to Colorado. Along with curating fine jewelry, Mary curates an impressive garden! Ask any Metalmark Maven and they will tell you that Metalmark’s succulents are as gorgeous as they are because of Mary’s green thumb. Her love of nature extends to the beautiful Colorado Rockies, which she loves exploring.

Please reach out to Mary if you are interested in searching for diamonds or other precious stones, jewelry repairs, watch repairs, estate jewelry needs.

Abby

Can't leave the house without what jewelry item on? My Samantha Louise Jewelry bridal suite! Samantha helped me re-imagine my original engagement ring and I've since added one of her signature bouquet bands to the set and I am obsessed! 

What’s currently on your wishlist? It honestly changes (or grows) daily, but right now I have my eyes on this beautiful Teardrop Revival pendant set with a blue sapphire by Parkford. I love the combo of the art-deco columns and the deep blue of the stone. I also am eyeing Azlee's 5 Tier Staircase ring and Elizabeth Moore's Circle of 5th's Diamond Hoops.

Favorite part of Metalmark? Getting to talk about jewelry all day, every day! It's truly both a passion and a career. 

If I'm not at Metalmark you can find me.... Skateboarding in the drive-way with my kids, on a hike or sleeping because of said kids. 

Favorite spot in Phoenix? I love Valentine on 7th Ave for both coffee and pastries in the morning or an intimate dinner in the evening.

Favorite part of the custom process? Getting to make someone's vision be brought to life. I truly get excited butterflies at the start of every custom project because it's always that unknown... Will we come up with a unique design? Will we be able to source the perfect stones? Will the client love it? No matter what, it ALWAYS comes together better than I could have imagined, and I love being a part of that special moment for someone. 

Best addition to an ear stack? A nice stack of ear cuffs. Throw on a Samantha Louise Emerald Baguette Cuff with a Jade Trau Clara Cuff and you are set. 

Favorite piece to make a statement with? I love a big ol' gold hoop or a fat beaded necklace.

Whitney

I like to think of myself as the queen of color. Nothing about me is neutral, not my house, not my shoes and definitely not my jewels. I think jewelry should be uniquely you and I love seeing a piece of jewelry and knowing exactly the person for it.

What jewelry piece can you not leave the house without? You'll probably never see me without ANY jewels on. It's meant to be worn and loved... except I do take off my rings (as advised) at the gym.

What’s currently on your wishlist? This is by far the hardest question you can ask in our biz. If you want the short list, I would say a Jade Trau Friendship Charm (still looking for someone to split it with me), a Polly Wales Skull Ring, a Samantha Louise Totem, an Azlee Compass Medallion, and a Jacquie Aiche Thunderbird.

Favorite part of Metalmark? The belly laughs, playing with jewelry, and creating jewelry junkies. 

If I'm not at Metalmark you can find me.... Reading a book!

Favorite spot in Carmel? I love a good patio in the summer so I would say Sun King or 3 Up. My soon to be husband also happens to be a fantastic cook so our kitchen is a great place to be as well. I like to watch him cook from my favorite blue velvet chair with a tall glass of wine and a good book!

Favorite part of the custom process? Incorporating meaningful aspects into a redesign of an older piece. I love when the stars align and you have the perfect amount of little diamonds to execute an idea. It really feels like kismet. It’s as if that person is watching over helping with the process. 

Best addition to an ear stack? More piercings? My recipe has always been one of each: sparkle, a pop of color, and a little bit of dangle. It needs to be intentional but asymmetric. Finding that balance feels like an art.

Favorite piece to make a statement with? Suzy Landa earrings. I love and want all of her one-of-kind earrings.

Vicki

Best addition to an ear stack?

If you are new to the piercing game I'd start with a 3rd hole on one side and always an ear cuff! Ear cuffs give off all the cool girl vibes and can be changed out easily. While I'm no stranger to a needle through the ear, who doesn't love a stylish cop out?

Currently on my wishlist… Where to even begin? A Samantha Louise Totem Bangle, Jacquie Aiche In-flight Bird Necklace, and a Diamond Riviera Necklace would be a great start!

Emily

What jewelry piece can you not leave the house without? An ear cuff. There is no party like an ear party, and my ear cuffs bring down the house. ALSO the Jacquie hand chain! It is a big part of my everyday look.  

What’s currently on your wishlist? One of everything?  

Favorite part of Metalmark? All the Mavens! Working with this group does not feel like work.  Women supporting women is all the rage here. Oh, and Friday happy hour. Catch us at 3 o’ clock on a Friday afternoon with margaritas in hand and we will make you one too.    

If I'm not at Metalmark you can find me.... It's a toss up between painting in my studio or being lost on a trail in the mountains with my dog. Either way, I am with my dog because we're attached at the hip. Leo is my 7 year old Boxer and he is a mama's boy. Best trick I ever taught him was how to give me a hug, and now we hug all the time.    

Favorite spot in Denver?

Wherever our maven Olivia is, that's my favorite place to be.

Favorite part of the custom process? Putting the idea on paper. I love to sketch all the ideas and bring them to life.   

Favorite piece to make a statement with? All together now Denver crew *The Elisabeth Bell Thorn Necklace*. We all love to style around this necklace, and it is a personal favorite.

Alexis

What’s currently on your wishlist? Where do I begin?!  Samantha Louise Jewelry Emerald Cactus Studs, the Jacquie Aiche Graduated Diamond Peaked Dome Ring, and the Elisabeth Bell Square Emerald necklace because who doesn't love emeralds?! 

Favorite spot in Carmel? The bakery next door! You can catch me sneaking chocolate chip cookies, hiding them in my drawer, and lying when asked what's in the bag. 

Favorite part of Metalmark? What's not to love?! The incredible women that are at each location, the team work, the creativity, the EMPOWERMENT, the commitment to community, the FAMILY.

Favorite piece to make a statement with? I LOVE a good Suzy Landa earring! The turquoise hearts are one of my favorites.

I was born and raised in Muncie, IN, but call the Indianapolis, IN area home now. I am grateful to be able to spend my time with friends and family. I am happiest doing anything that involves sunshine, nature, water and maybe a mimosa or two. And I think kindness is super cool.
