Maria is driven by the desire to experiment with materials and processes. She is intrigued by the idea of wearable story and communication through jewelry. Her work also portrays a material obsession, using both traditional jewelry methods and newer technologies including 3D printing and laser cutting.
For this body of work, Maria is focused on new technologies. The jewelry is designed in a CAD program and made using a 3D printer. The pieces are then hand dyed in the artist's studio.
Maria studied jewelry and metals at Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia.
