Maya crafts timeless pieces of jewellery that are both understated yet compelling in their delicate lines and textural detailing. With an eye for restrained detail, intriguing in its intricacy, Maya introduces unconventional techniques such as gold dust fusing to create luxurious, enduring classics that transcend time and passing trends.
