Maya Branman jewelry is inspired by the colors of the sky at sunsets, sometimes stormy, with bright unbelievable fuschias, and pastels, and the bluest sky. In the fall the greys and dull colors of the yellowed clouds, contrasting with fall leaves. My inspiration is the 1800's, when clothing was all pretty, every skirt, dress, necklace, and belt was pretty, and women could not even vote.
The button jewelry is made with vintage buttons from the 1930's-1950's. The floral jewelry is made with authentic vintage acetate flowers that were imported in the 1950's from Japan. The pieces are hand dyed many times to achieve subtle and beautiful effects that compliment your natural coloring. The jewelry is also made with Swarovski crystals, fire polished Czech beads, vintage brass stampings, African paper beads, semi-precious stones, vintage beads, elaborately painted brass pieces, and faux pearls.
