London, United Kingdom
Maria Lau jewellery is where craft meets industrialised luxury. Combining traditional and experimental handcraft techniques with new materials – fluidity, tactility and a combination of hard with soft materials are the main elements of my design signature. My collections feature sculptural stand-out pieces alongside more wearable, detailed items, which are always elegant yet subtly playful.
Many of my jewellery designs transcend the seasons, allowing the wearer to mix and match from different collections. Inspired by strong female muses and tales of far-flung fiction, my jewellery is for the modern woman who likes to express her creativity and individual taste, with an eye for detail and a sense of playfulness. My debut collection ‘A Skin Less Ordinary’ was launched in June 2008 at ‘Treasure,’ London Jewellery Week, and has since received press in international magazines and is regularly requested by influential fashion stylists. Since graduating from The Royal College of Art in MA Mixed Media Textiles (2003), I have created jewellery for Michiko Koshino, DKNY and Harrods. All jewellery is handmade, finished and packaged within my studio in the UK.Read less
