DESIGNED + CRAFTED IN SYDNEY FOR CELEBRATORS OF UNIQUENESS
MAINE+MARA accessories are designed for the bold and the brave. A unique collection of edgy statement jewellery handmade in Sydney. Championing colourful, contemporary aesthetics, each distinctive piece of wearable art tells a story.
MAINE+MARA was born after a serious accident left Tamara requiring facial reconstruction. It became immediately clear in the aftermath how impactful what we wear can be, and how shapes have the ability to balance our features and empower us to embrace imperfect perfection.
This fresh perspective led her to resign as a creative director and pursue her passion for creating meaningful products to inspire acceptance, authenticity, positive self-love and expression.
Each piece is handmade with the intention of uplifting its wearer and inspiring the celebration of individuality and strength. MAINE+MARA is bringing the fire with fierce yet feminine, badass jewellery, made to move and designed to stand out.
Go get ‘em.
RESPECT YOUR RESOURCES / WASTE NOT WANT NOT
We are always searching for ways to share time, materials, and knowledge; reducing waste and truly appreciating what has been given.
We love local, using a local laser cutter and locally sourced materials in the making of all our work. Our laser cutter gets all of their energy from 100% green power from Powershop who topped the Greenpeace green electricity guide. Keeping things local lets us pick up our deliveries in person, and minimise our footprint.
We use Acrylic in our products, because these are made to last and don't tarnish. The negative spaces in our designs are turned into positives; all off-cuts are kept and reused in the making of new creations to ensure minimal waste.
KINDNESS IS COOL
We are committed to finding ongoing ways to spread joy in big and small ways. We use Nickel free, hypoallergenic material to make sure our pieces cause no irritations. For un-pierced ears that don’t want to miss out on the fun we’ve customised designs to accomodate clip-on options.
Additionally, every month we donate to the Indigenous Community Volunteers which provides access to skilled volunteers and resources in areas where education, health-care, and employment opportunities are often limited.
ALWAYS ADD VALUE
We are all able to add value to anything we touch in some way, moving things forward, helping things grow, and transforming what comes next.
