Maya Kini Jewelry is made by hand in San Francisco, California.
Her jewelry is sold and exhibited nationally and internationally.
Maya Kini studied sculpture in Florence, Italy and literature in the Pacific Northwest before she received a graduate degree in Metalsmithing from Cranbrook Academy of Art. She draws upon her love of research, her minimalist sensibility, and a sculptural approach to create bespoke jewelry and limited production pieces.
She uses high-karat gold, steel, silver and raw, textured stones in her jewelry. An ardent supporter of Ethical Metalsmiths and their efforts to source both newly mined and recycled precious metals, she works with recycled gold and silver to create jewelry and to re-imagine heirlooms. For each custom piece, Maya also offers assistance to her clients in selecting certified recycled and conflict free diamonds.
Since 2008 Maya’s jewelry has been exhibited at art shows and galleries in: Amsterdam, Netherlands; Baltimore, MD; Berkeley, CA; Boston, MA; Petaluma, CA; Philadelphia, PA; Sacramento, CA; San Francisco, CA; Seattle, WA; and Washington, DC; as well as, the National Ornamental Metal Museum in Memphis, TN.
