I LOVE jewellery. It is no secret that I always have loads of rings on my fingers. The day I forgot wearing my rings I feel I’m missing something.

Earlier on I had written about the Danish Jewellery Brand Maria Black. I met Maria briefly at the Jewellery Room when I visited Copenhagen Fashion Week in January.

Born in Copenhagen, Danish-Irish designer Maria Black launched her first collection MBJ in 2010 built on ambition and passion for precious metals with a fashion-forward approach to conceptual jewellery design. Before moving back to Copenhagen, Maria created the MBJ eponymous collection from her London studio,  letting her Nordic roots translate into classic, understated, sleek lines combined with edgy, sexy and dramatic shapes and elements perceived on her travels where she had studied the cultural elements of body adornment.

Few weeks ago I went to Copenhagen again for some work (which you should stay tuned to the upcoming ELLE HK issues for the stories :D) , and I had the pleasure to meet the beautiful and fun Maria again. So we had lunch and she introduced me to the typical Danish lunch at her favourite restaurant. It was a very enjoyable afternoon and we had such a pleasant time.

The day after, I made a short but sweet visit to her workshop in Nyhavn, Copenhagen. Maria was very busy with the upcoming collection, but she was super sweet and telling me what’s happening, and showing me around the cozy little studio and the gorgeous office upstairs. All the pieces were designed in this cozy studio, and the precision of all the designs, the castings, the weight and how they fit are very important to Maria. She’s very hands-on with every procedure, which is why all her pieces are beautifully crafted and smartly designed.

From the launching collection, MARIA BLACK JEWELLERY took the fashion world by storm and quickly caught the attention of many of the world’s most prominent celebrity trendsetters. The signature concept of MARIA BLACK JEWELLERY is the creation of interchangeable pieces that can be mixed and matched through collections, allowing a synergetic versatility in the individual expression. If you haven’t yet tried on a piece of Maria’s Jewellery, particularly her earrings, you won’t understand why I kept saying they’re smartly designed and created.

The latest collection The Code is again another beautiful collection with the signature Danish clean and chic touch. Simple, neat, yet utterly beautiful. I have already got my hands on more than a few pieces, and the collection is only going to expand!
