Originally from Galway, Maria is an Irish-Indian jeweller based in Dublin. Her eclectic heritage is reflected in her work which fuses elegant, modern design and unusual shapes with traditional craftsmanship.
Maria fell in love with jewellery making at the Alchimia School of Contemporary Jewellery in Florence. With a degree in ceramic design and a background in luxury fashion, she initially studied in Italy and then further developed her goldsmithing skills at Stonechat Jewellers.
In 2013 Maria launched her first collection. She has continued to design and make jewellery, working with precious metals, while also participating successfully in shows and exhibitions both at home and abroad.
