We put our love and attention into creating jewellery that you will wear for a life time. Classical, yet with a twist, the forms we create are natural and playful, made to age well.

We think that it’s important that you wear your jewellery with ease. Therefor, our pieces are strong and wel build while they keep their elegance. Due to handcraft, each jewel is unique and just a tiny bit different, enough to make it exceptionally yours.

Our brand comes from Utrecht, Netherlands, and is run by Maja Badnjevic.

With a keen eye for detail and background in fine arts, Maja finds her inspiration in nature. In all those beautiful shapes and life forms around us, from the smallest micro organisms and beyond, to planets and stars. She loves to explore patterns and structures through her drawing and often brings these into her jewellery.

Maja works in a wonderful atelier in Utrecht, surrounded by her colleagues goldsmiths. Come and visit us!

The jewellery has been worn since the ancient times. As well as showing our beauty, it is made to feel us stronger, remember a special moment, or keep connected to that dear person.

We put our love and attention into making those pieces a real treasure for you.


We work with fine quality silver & 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 again, recycle this fine material.

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 us for a size fitting (or your local jewellery store – if you live far away).

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