Maria Black was born in Copenhagen with a life-defining curiosity of world cultures that led her to travel across the globe. On her travels, her desire for creation was sparked from the inspiration and beauty she observed, leading her to discover and pursue jewelry design. After 4 years of apprenticeships in both London and Copenhagen, she earned her Goldsmith degree with highest honours and started working on her own collection.
Similar to the production process of fashion apparel, each collection is initiated and interpreted by designed “fabrics” of precious metals that define and link the collections. The signature concept of her work is the creation of interchangeable pieces that can be mixed and matched through collections, allowing a versatility in the individual expression.
