Brilliant, striking stones with unique shapes define Maria Frantzi's elegant yet whimsically vivid jewelry. Each piece has a fantastical beauty, both bold and sublime. Glowing pink tourmalines and luminous blue Apatites and Chrysocollas, inspired by the Aegean Sea, are cradled by the hand sculpted gold borders.

Born on the Greek island of Rhodes into a family of jewelers, Maria has been surrounded by beautiful jewels her entire life. She studied jewelry design in Thessaloniki, Greece, and opened her first jewelry workshop in 1988. Maria moved to London in 1999 and began selling her jewelry to customers all over the world.

Maria is fascinated by the history of jewelry, how it has been used to express prestige, power, faith and love throughout the ages. During the design process, her greatest source of inspiration is to find a way to bring a new perspective to this ancient artform. She starts with an idea and as she begins to solder and hammer, she lets it evolve with her inspiration, resulting in a no two the same true uniqueness. Maria does every part of the production process herself, from selecting the stones to making the settings.
