Mary Ann's voluminous resume includes seven decades of work as a designer, metal smith, jeweler, educator and studio artist. Subsequent to WWII, she was the first woman to be hired by Ford Motor Company's automotive division, and she designed for other corporations, including Goodyear, Alcoa, and US Steel. She owns patents for her design of body monitors, and copyrights for processes such as the instant photo etching of metals. She pioneered the use of exotic metals in adornment, stainless steel, rare earth metals, aluminum and mild steels.
