From her atelier in Milan, Italy, one of Europe’s most acclaimed fashion capitals, Maria creates jewelry using silks and other fabrics, glass, and metal beads of her own making. Her interest is in highly sophisticated, but not exclusively urban designs with an eye for texture, shape, pattern, color, and form. Multi-strand woven neckpieces or long strands of beads with a single large focal element, these assertive pieces are made with passion for the materials and respect for the wearer. I’ve chosen boldly – reds, blacks, and whites – selecting for drama and pizazz. A single piece of Maria’s work will enrich a wardrobe year-round.
