Her fascination for the beauty of nature and her scientific background gave Mariam a strong aesthetic sense and a natural ease and interest in understanding and exploring the various technical and delicate aspects involved in jewellery design and making. Thanks to her attention to details, Mariam’s jewellery pieces are made to the finest quality and are beautifully
Maro’s pieces are all handmade in Mariam’s North London based studio, using ethically sourced material. Maro’s collections all have their own signature design, and unmistakably convey a sense of ancient heritage that you will treasure forever and pass on to your loved ones.

Maro’s Byzantine collection conveys protection, peace and beauty. The Byzantine Jaras Dormeuse feature two Byzantine bell charms, with a diameter of 0.9cm. These earrings are handmade in Hallmarked Sterling Silver with an 18ct Yellow Gold plate. The Byzantine bell charms hang freely on a delicate 1cm diameter hoop.

The Byzantine collection is inspired by the delicate carved wooden latticework found on Mashrabiyas, wooden windows adorning homes, palaces, public and sacred places in Egypt and other Middle Eastern countries. These intricate carved details are traditional elements used in Arabic architecture since the middle ages. They convey protection, freshness, peace, quietness and beauty.

Our Byzantine collection is made of etched metal, creating beautifully textured and unique surfaces.
