Maja Lava designs and creates jewellery pieces inspired by the im-perfections found in the nature.

The person behind it is a goldsmith and artist Maja Badnjevic.

Combining her love for drawing, patterns and nature, Maja creates handmade pieces that are exclusive and made to last long.

Jewellery used as a symbol makes us feel authentic and present, it accentuates our beauty.

For Maja, this is where her passion stands, she creates pieces that highlight the elegance and uniqueness of people. Since the ancient times the jewellery has been used to point up our strength and excellence.

On this website you can see and as well buy pieces from our current collections.

For custom made order contact Maja Lava to schedule an appointment.

All Maja Lava jewellery is handmade in our atelier in the Netherlands, created with love & care.


We work with gold, silver, stones and wood.

Most of the pieces that are made out of silver are also possible to be made out of gold.

If you have old jewellery at home, which you rarely wear, because it doesn’t fit your style, we can melt it and keep it’s special value this way. Many times old jewellery just stays in cupboards, and it is so good to use it!

If you would like to order a ring but are not sure about the size, you can download and print the ring size chart HERE.

Or contact Maja Lava for a size fitting ( Or your local jewellery store – if you live far away ).

Fairtrade & Recycled

Next to recycled Gold and Silver, Maja works as well with certified Fairtrade Gold and Silver.

Fairtrade means that the metals are being mined under strict conditions which are better for the nature and for the miners. Even while using recycled materials, the mining does not stop, and this is the way to make steps to better, more sustainable and fair mining.

Let us know if you would like your jewellery made of Fairtrade materials.


Maja Lava atelier is in Utrecht, the Nederlands.

Its a great working space shared with several goldsmiths at Edelsmederij van der Leen.

There are also courses you can follow here and learn the craft. Truly recommended!
