Passionate about art and design, I am involved in the creative process every step of the way. Each MAKAL collection collaborates with female jewellery designers. I’m also proud to draw on contemporary Italian craftsmanship from my homeland to enhance the raw beauty of gold nuggets and coloured gemstones.
Sustainability has played a leading role in my life over many years, including my time as a one of very few women operating in the male dominated mining sector. My family’s mine in Central America pioneered an innovative business model to produce fully-traceable gold from ethical operations and women-run cooperatives. This led to zero-waste extraction and chemical-free processing. We treated local artisanal miners as equal business partners. I believe mining should be a positive force for community development – a commitment that sits at the heart of the MAKAL brand.
Our customers are discerning and principled individuals, with the confidence to wear fine jewellery that is truly unique. There’s nothing quite like a MAKAL piece, so there’s nobody quite like a MAKAL owner.
