byMaraca is a one-woman metalsmith business for handcrafted jewellery in Liverpool, UK. The unique pieces, which are mostly made from silver and brass, are all designed and handcrafted by me, Mareike, in my little studio – with the aim of creating jewellery that makes the everyday just that little bit brighter.
Established early 2020, I decided to take things properly into my hands when the first lockdown hit and I felt like making jewellery, designing, crafting, hammering away, was giving me the control other parts of my life were lacking. The result is an outburst of my creativity in the shape of beautiful, unique jewellery in various different lines that just keep coming!
I enjoy making new things, thinking up new designs, experimenting, while always making jewellery that I would (and do) wear myself, staying authentic to what I think is right. Most pieces start out as metal wire or sheet, and once they leave my bench, they are a manifestation of s passion, ready to last a lifetime, being worn in whatever situation you find yourself in – true versatility.
