Maracole is the creator of Maracole Bijoux, a line of hand-woven ornaments made exclusively with fine Japanese seed beads and repurposed Vintage lucite beads from the seventies
Hand Woven Ornaments
Combining the most contemporary design with bead-weaving - one amongst the most ancient crafts in various cultures from all over the world - Maracole has been able to create delightfully crafted collars, that are available for fashion styling, runways and boutiques.
Each and every necklace branded Maracole is hand-woven in the USA and it requires from 10 to 40 hours of work for completion.
Maracole says about her designs:
“Attention to details, high manufacturing and bright colors are distinctive traits of Maracole Bijoux. I am mostly inspired by contemporary art, by designers from the Bauhaus movement, and by ethnic ornaments from all over the world. Repurposing vintage lucite beads from 1970 is a passion of mine, which underlies my dedication in creating a sustainable life cycle for my jewelry. For this particular reason, I place my brand in the realm of eco-sustainable fashion. For the same reason, my collections are limited editions, and the number of pieces available for sale varies according to the amount of vintage beads in stock.”
