What was your career before the creation of your jewelry brand?
I studied design and model making, and then I quickly wanted to specialize in accessories. As soon as I was done, my teachers and friends all agreed that I had to create my own brand ... so I listened to them and I started in November 2012.
How was your passion for jewelry born? Why did you create your brand?
Originally, M.A. STONE was a brand of leather goods but I knew it was only a starting point. In April 2013, the idea of designing jewelry came to mind. I started to sketch models that looked like me, my travels and the people I had met.
Then in March 2013, during a trip to Bali, destiny led me to a talented jewelry craftsman with whom I decided to create some pieces. When I came back, I put them in the shop! Since then, I cannot stop designing, I am fascinated by the endless possibilities there are in art-making or sculpture.
