marja (MAR-ya) started on her career in metalsmithing while pursuing a ph.d. in psychology. to distract from the stress of dissertation analyses, she explored various jewelry techniques at a local studio and fell in love. degree complete, she left academia and began to pursue metalsmithing full time.

marja creates jewelry collections notable for clean lines and striking details, mixing metals and textures to create looks that are eye-catching but still perfect for everyday wear. the streamlined silhouettes and dramatic details in her designs make for an impactful look that pairs equally well with a chic black jumpsuit or jeans and a moto jacket.
