I Am Maryann

Sometimes in life you just have to fly, choose the road less traveled and go with your gut about next steps and that’s just what Maryann Dolzani of Fairfield is doing.

This Mother of two decided to get off the travel-to-New-York-City merry-go-round  in order to raise her children. After much thought she decided to create a jewelry line, not just any line, but one that meant something. She launched her beautifully simple line in June of 2011 and didn’t look back.

Maryann needed a name for her company. She came up with all kind of things but settled on “I Am MaryAnn.” She knows what she’s doing, she was a marketing major from Quinnipiac University who has worked for big companies and is taking all that she has learned and applying it now to her own company.

I Am MaryAnn  is a line of jewelry she makes all herself. She puts meaningful words onto simple round gold-filled and sterling silver charms. She told me the message is more important than the jewelry, that makes a lot of sense.

She taps in each letter with a hammer, a kind of letter pressing. The fonts she had created to give just the right look. Each charm is her creation, your creation, whatever you come up with she will make for you.  She told me that since she’s opened her online business, she’s getting emails from buyers who are pouring out their life stories as to why they want a charm that says love, or peace or a certain name. She’s saving those stories to perhaps put in a book some day which I would find fascinating.

As laid back as Maryann is, she’s a perfectionist and it shows in her work, but now her work is on her terms, she has a kind of contentment that most would find refreshing.

Her web site is simple too a white background with a big red dot which matches her packaging.

Maryann has now found herself in what she says is a real authentic place. She’s toiling over her work and getting great satisfaction doing. She is able to pick her children up from school, and spend more time with her husband, something she wouldn’t be doing if she were still in the rat race.

Maryann has plans to grow this business, she has already gotten her line in with a company who will display her line of jewelry at next year’s Golden Globes. She knows if she can catch the eye of one Hollywood type it could really put her new business on the map.

For Maryann her priorities are in order and although building a business from scratch is daunting she’s up to the task because she is at peace with her decisions. If somebody asked you the question “who are you?” could you answer that? Maryann has.
