Founded in 2008, while Maria Allen was at University in the vibrant City of Brighton, studying graphic design. Inspired by the antique jewellery shops of the iconic North Laine, Maria developed a love of treasured jewellery and vintage keepsakes; special items which capture precious memories and moments in time.
However, Maria was unable to find unique, affordable jewellery for herself or gifts for friends, and disheartened by the fashion jewellery that was on offer on the high street, she decided to create her very own collection of handmade items.
With her desire to create beautiful jewellery and gifts, Maria created her own distinctive style. Inspired by vintage illustrations, travel memorabilia, botanical etchings and beautiful typography, while combining her love of classic designs with modern ideas, and applying both innovative and traditional craft and jewellery making techniques.
As business flourished, the team at Maria Allen Boutique has also grown. Today the team of 7 talented and dedicated craftspeople, work together in their Brighton studio, and take great pride designing and producing each and every item by hand, with the help their trusty laser cutter. Each item is not only made-to-order, but also beautifully gift wrapped and carefully pack- aged, ready to bring a smile to the face of each lucky recipient.
Maria Allen Boutique’s signature items include the Personalised Love Letter Necklace, Envelope Cufflinks and the collection of wooden laser etched Necklaces, Earrings and Brooches. In recent years the product range has also developed to include Personalised Wedding Gifts and Decorations, Homeware and Men’s Jewellery. Recent best-sellers include the Personalised Plectrums, Luggage Tags and Glass Jewellery Boxes, all featuring both their vintage and modern designs.
