Maria Black

Designer Maria Black melds old world artisan traditions with leading-edge technology to handcraft fine jewelry with an ethereal aesthetic at her Copenhagen-based studio. Her namesake label’s uncompromising philosophy seeks to challenge the perception of body adornment with androgynous forms and expressions. Black shapes precious metals into geometric formations and, since launching the label in 2010, has exhibited how beautiful lines can be twisted in new, inspired ways. Black's need to invent stems from a lifelong fascination with sterling silver and 14k gold, a profound connection to Japanese art and culture, and the tanquility of Copenhagen itself. Strong silhouettes are rooted in simplicity and fluidity, elevating statement pieces and avant-garde reinventions of classic earrings, while drawing inspiration from the 1970s glam rock-era. Polished fine box chain and chunky anchor chain necklaces display the Danish label's ability to find the balance between delicate and edgy jewelry, while the understated opulence of faux-pearl embellishments and crystal-accented ear cuffs are reflective of the trinkets Black would find when visiting her grandmother’s house. Exquisite and visionary, Maria Black’s multi-textured pieces are as compelling as they are otherworldly.
