About Maria

For as long as I can remember, I have loved jewellery. My grandmother would bring rings back from Cyprus and let the women of the family choose their favourite ring.

Being the eldest grandchild of the family, I was 9, if there was a ring left over I could have it, and that's where my jewellery obsession began.

Fast forward to today, I have now been in the jewellery industry for 27 years and have done everything from hand making, design, wholesale, guest speaking, hosted bubbles and bling events, jewellery styling and written my own book.

I have also appeared on the TODAY show, Studio 10 and Shark Tank, let's just say my jewellery journey has been a wild ride.

I’m sure I was a princess in a past life; as my first jewellery business was making tiaras in my bridal jewellery business for 7 years before I opened a gift store in the beautiful beach side suburb of Manly, Sydney where I made and sourced all sorts of different styles of jewellery.

From my gorgeous store in Manly, due to the end of my marriage, I turned my passion to designing versatile jewellery for busy women, which is now my focus.

Seeing women’s faces light up when they see the 10 Way Necklace transform into jewellery that will take you from day to night and every holiday lights me up each and every time! The positive testimonials I receive inspires me and is the reason why I love what I do! 

We now have a Facebook group called the Sparkle Sisterhood and words cannot describe the joy and love we share there! It started as a place to discuss all things that bling and has now turned into a worldwide group where women come to together to sparkle, share and support one another through life's ups and downs - it is truly something very special and much more than I ever hoped it would be!

We do 3 x 1 hour Facebook Lives per week, where my family get involved, did I mention my family work with me too? Yes I have a fabulous team which includes my sister - Gina, my kids - Kristen and Jonathon and last but certainly not least my gorgeous Mum - Christine - who is also affectionately known as Da Mumma who not only work with me but also join in on the lives and add a little craziness and laughter, which we all need don't we?

I feel so grateful and blessed for this life and I'm so glad that you are all a part of it.

I'm excited for what's to come!

Keep Sparkling,
