Maker of the Month - Lucy Cox of Madkel Designs

Maker of the Month - Lucy Cox of Madkel Designs

As crisp autumn enters, we’re all reminded why we love our Martha’s Vineyard community so much. We can finally see some familiar faces, take a walk on our favorite beaches, maybe make a boat reservation but most importantly, revel in our creative talents. At Martha’s Vineyard Made, we’re a collaborative of local Makers showcasing creative talents year round. We’ve made it our mission to fully support our Island makers, and by doing so, we’re so excited to launch our Maker of the Month! Each month we’ll be featuring a Maker (member) of ours for everyone to get to know. 

Meet our first Maker of the Month, Lucy Cox of Madkel Designs

Flannel season is upon us and Madkel Designs is our favorite. With a little bit of bleach and a lot of embellishments, Lucy Cox is turning an Island classic into a contemporary necessity. But that’s not where she stops; Lucy also creates timeless jewelry that features beautiful stones, vintage coins and more. 

For as long as she can remember, Lucy has loved to create; from sewing andneedlepoint to painting, always keeping her hands busy and expressing her talents. For over 15 years Lucy has been working out of her West Tisbury homestudio, setting up shop for Madkel Designs at the Chilmark Flea Market (until 2020). Madkel Designs namesake comes from Lucy’s two daughters, Madeline and Kelsey, both of whom inspire her creativity and craft. 

Each piece of jewelry Lucy makes is original and features personally selected stones while each flannel she makes is sourced and upcycled from Detroit, Michigan but embellished and bleached in her studio in West Tisbury. Her entire collection is ever changing with the seasons and reflects the inspiration she finds around her. 

Madkel Designs can be purchased both online and in-store, with something truly for everyone! Shop her entire collection here
