What was your inspiration behind the collection?

My collection draws inspiration from the moon and its infinite power and beauty. The moon is a feminine symbol and I have always been fascinated by the way its phases represent the rhythm of life. I wanted to create a jewellery range with moonstones that encapsulate the planet’s metaphysical properties; calm, balance and peace, all of which are traits that we need in order to cope with everyday life.

Why did you decide to collaborate with Maya Magal?

I have always loved jewellery and my obsession dates back to childhood; the sentimentality and individualism that it represents has always appealed to me. It was exciting to be asked by Maya to take part in a project last year which saw the launch of the MMCollective Collaboration and I was thrilled that my ring was so well received. Being offered the chance to expand my existing range has allowed me to really bring my personality in to the pieces. 

Maya is a joy to work with and I am a huge fan of her simple, geometric and handcrafted designs, it was such a fun process to see our ideas come to life and I can’t wait to see people wearing the collection!
