I’m a 16 year old high school girl from Slovenia. An enthusiastic and hard working with big plans for the future.

I started creating after my grandmother passed, but then it was only a hobby. I always had the desire to create something beautiful and unique. I started creating sea themed handmade jewelry with real starfishes, old and rare Mediterranean seashells, genuine sea glass, real beach sand, real corals from the bottom of Mediterranean sea, dried Iceland moss and many other natural elements.

With my parents and sisters we created the “Maristella” shop and decided to dedicate our time into making unique and good quality jewelry. It is a family shop that brought us closer together. So far I have sold more than 1000 pieces of my jewelry to some of many amazing places in the world.

I love saying that everything happens for a reason and I don’t think you are “too young” or “too old” to start doing what you love to do. I was featured in many local magazines, well known sites and blogs and had a lot of interviews so far, still can’t believe what I achieved so far and I am only 16.
