About the Brand
Combining a refined aesthetic finesse in delicate metal pieces, the jewellery designed by Maria Black is unique, graphic and versatile. She works with the body as a canvas on which everyone can express their individuality, affixing a kaleidoscope of shapes: stacking triangle rings, earrings to put in the back of the ear, necklaces to overlap, her pieces marry and blend perfectly, creating real synergies between them. Each in its own way is a unique piece of jewellery which will combine perfectly with all of the Black Maria creations or incorporate gracefully to create an individual piece of art.
Danish designer Maria Black launched her first collection in 2010, inspired by precious metals and a conceptual approach to costume jewellery. Born in Copenhagen, and nourished by her travels throughout Europe, Brazil and India, she translates her Nordic origins in sleek and minimalist jewellery, where she combines the most sensual and strong pieces, inspired by her travels and the art of body adornment. Since the beginning, Black Maria’s strong and unique approach has attracted many celebrities such as Scarlett Johansson, Rihanna, Nicole Richie, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Jessica Alba and Beyoncé.
Autumn/Winter 2016-17 Collection
Based on a Neo-minimalist identity, the Black Maria collection revisits the iconic pieces of the Danish designer with a sleek and airborne treatment. True to her signature look, her jewelry collection marries, alternates, accumulates and mixes, to create a unique look. In an era of mass consumerism, the designer questions and refocuses on individuality, encouraging us to create our own silhouette, with single earrings, jewelry accumulations and peculiar ways to wear the pieces.
