My name is Maria Marmara and I am a metalsmith! Among other things I consider myself an animal lover and environmentally conscious so this is why all the gemstones and semiprecious stones I work with are ethically sourced and almost all metal used is recycled.i'm enchanted by personalities, movements, looks, journeys and this is where i seek inspiration.Sometimes I approach my work intuitively, I begin with a simple sketch or nothing at all and I see where the process takes me. I appreciate very much the element of chance.

 I am thinking that part of the reason why I am making jewellery is the amazing feeling when the piece begins to take on the form of my emotions and the hope that it will bring joy to the people who will wear it!
