ABOUT THE MAKER
Our jewelry studio in East Los Angeles is where the metal magic happens. MAAARI co-founder Jeanette Sawyer and master jeweler Misty Summers are the metal-smiths who lovingly, with intention, hand make each piece in our jewelry collection — complimenting the beauty and power in all women. Inspired by indigenous Filipino culture and contemporary art + design, Jeanette develops and produces architectural statements pieces drawing from the simple shapes found in contemporary design. Misty Summers, a highly skilled jeweler and producer, is a production master who uses refined jewelry techniques to execute high quality craftsmanship. All pieces are made with ethically-mined metal and sustainably-sourced earth stones.
Brass naturally oxidizes over time. Renew your piece's shine with lemon, baking soda, and a polishing cloth. To delay oxidation, keep your MAAARI jewelry away from moisture.
For the mother of pearl, keep jewelry away from direct sunlight, strong sources of heat or very dry atmospheres. If the shell becomes dry, the surfaces will crack and become less resistant to wear and tear.
It is best not to clean mother of pearl jewelry with harsh cleaners, strong abrasives or alcohol as they will destroy the original color. Never clean your pearls in an ultrasonic cleaner or use detergent, baking soda or ammonia based products.
Mother of pearl is delicate and will scratch if mishandled. Wrapping them in a soft cloth bag for storage will help prevent damage. Clean after wearing by simply wiping with a soft cloth, chamois or microfiber jewelry cleaning cloth, either damp or dry.
