marielle estelle

Marielle was born in Montpellier, south of France.

From a young age, Marielle always loved creating things and knew her direction in life had to be in art, in making beautiful pieces. At just 32, Marielle has travelled extensively which has influenced her work greatly.

Marielle began pushing her creative boundaries wanting to learn more, gain more experience. She returned to France, in Paris to study in AFEDAP (contemporary jewellery school) for two years, learning all the aspects of jewellery making.

Coming back to NZ, she had the privilege to share studios of well known jewellers as Peter McKay and Nick Feint. All these experiences allowed her to create an exquisite and distinctive work, combining a French Flair with a hint of Aotearoa inspiration.
