Hello & Welcome!
My name is Maja and I am the person designing and crafting Maja Lava jewellery.
Founded in Utrecht, the Netherlands in 2013, Maja Lava stands for elegant and playful jewellery, classical, yet with a twist.
I like to evoke a feeling of softness and flexibility while working in this strong, long lasting material, silver and gold. You will often find traces of drawing as well in my jewellery. I studied fine arts and I still love to draw. You might notice certain details in a form of a playful line, a pattern, or an unusual shape which actually first emerged in my drawings. The collections are inspired by nature and its organic forms.
Due to handcraft, each jewel is unique and just a tiny bit different, enough to make it exceptionally yours.
All the pieces are handmade in studio in Utrecht, which I share with several colleagues goldsmiths. You are welcome to visit our studio by appointment.
