Jacqueline Ganim-Defalco ventured into the world of wearable art in 2003. She displayed her work for the first time at the October 2004 Sea Glass Festival in Rockport, Mass.
Inspired by her husband Michael and their mutual passion for history and antique glass collecting, she decided to combine her business and creative skills. Recognizing an unfilled niche for high quality, custom designed hair accessories, she pulled together pieces of sea glass from Cape Ann.
Now she creates a collection of hair accessories and jewelry. She expanded to nearly twenty boutiques. Boston Globe, Cape Ann Magazine, and North Shore Magazine among others featured her work.
In 2008, Jacqueline’s work appeared prominently in A Passion for Sea Glass, the latest book by author Carole Lambert. Jacqueline helped form the Wearable Arts group inside of seARTS. The group hosts an annual holiday show in Gloucester.
