Maja Lava is a jewellery label made by goldsmith and artist Maja Badnjevic.

This small scale jewellery label stands for exceptional, limited edition pieces, made to last long and designed to make you stand out in a unique, authentic way.

Maja Lava jewellery pieces are both elegant and raw, both subtle and strong. You can come here for custom handcrafted adornments and empowering jewellery piece, from engagement and wedding rings, to special gifts as earrings, pendants, cufflings and bracelets.

Visit me in my studio in Utrecht for a sneak peak and try out, or at any of my stockists, coming markets & exhibitions!


I 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 you can contact me for a size fitting ( Or your local jewellery store – if you live far away ).

Fairtrade & Recycled

Did you know that Maja Lava uses mainly recycled gold and silver? There is already enough being taken out of planet earth and the metals have the beautiful properties that make them fairly easy to recycle. Beter for mother nature.

Next to recycled Gold and Silver, I work as well with certified Fairtrade Gold and Silver.

Fairtrade means that the metals are still being taken from Earth, but under strict conditions which are better for the nature and the miners. Even while many goldsmiths use recycled materials, the mining does not stop, and this is the way to make steps to better, more sustainable and fair mining.

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


My atelier is in Utrecht, the Nederlands.

I share a great working space with several goldsmiths at Edelsmederij van der Leen.

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