Moria Barton Sherard
An Ann Arbor native, Moria left her hometown to experience life in Colorado, Arizona and Alaska. An experienced designer, having spent five years with a prominent shop in Colorado Springs, Moria has been with Abracadabra since 2004. As an art and design student in college, she received several awards. Her love of design and jewelry inspired her to study the creation of jewelry at the Ann Arbor Art Center. The clean lines and simple beauty of landscapes inspire her modern aesthetic, evident in her current designs. Moria truly enjoys her craft, which has been in her family for three generations. Her grandmother was an antique jewelry dealer. Together with her mother and sister, Moria created Barton Designs. BD is a line of semi-precious colored gemstone jewelry in sterling silver and gold filled, showcased at Abracadabra. Matt (husband), Cleo (boxer “daughter”) and Moria love taking long walks through all the local parks, their favorite being Ann Arbor’s Arboretum. Moria is an Ann Arbor Visitors Bureau Certified Tourism Ambassador and a Jewelers of America Certified Senior Sales Professional.
