When you tell people “I’m going to be successful.” and you are only 13, they tell you "Of course you will." while thinking you are too ambitious. Instead of listening to those people I worked hard and proved you can do anything you set your mind to, no matter how old you are.

Now being 18, I can say that the 4 years of running my business "Maristella" was a dream come true. I’ve sold more than 5000 pieces of my jewelry to 60 different countries all around the world. I was also featured in many international magazines and websites such as FOX, ABC, CBS, NBC and many more.

Now only the sky is the limit! I’ve grown so much and so did my business. I have created jewelry with materials that I found next to my house on the beach in Ankaran, Slovenia and these are the exact same materials that I use to this day.
