My name is Marina and I am from a beautiful small European country named Slovenia. I live near the sea and a little hidden “island” full of seashells. I am an 18-year-old high school girl but don’t be fooled, I am an enthusiastic and hard working with big plans for the fut ure. With my parents and sisters, we created Maristella shop and decided to dedicate our time to making unique and quality jewelry. It is a family shop that brought us closer together.
I started creating after my grandmother passing, but then it was only a hobby. I always had the desire to create something beautiful and unique. I started with soap baskets for different occasions, but later on decided to switch to jewelry, not any kind of jewelry, but sea-themed jewelry with real seastars and real seashells.
