Who Is VW & ML?
VW & ML is a mom and daughter team with a passion for making quality jewelry. VW & ML are the initials for Virgina Wortman and her daughter, Marilyn Leach. Virginia is the daughter of Spanish immigrants who moved to California, where she was born. Marilyn has spent most of her life in Arizona with a brief stint in California. Both had modest upbringings, but nothing was given, everything had to be earned with hard work and commitment. Both currently live in Tucson Arizona
VW & ML is helped by Derek Leach who is the son of Marilyn. Derek takes the responsibility of promoting VW & ML, keeping stock of all and promoting/marketing all jewelry. Derek at the age of eighteen founded a video game development company, CryoMonkey, LLC. Derek was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona where he currently resides.
