Maria Helena Spector
Sculpted Peruvian treasures
Peruvian born jeweller Maria Helena Spector draws on her exotic heritage for the colourful and sumptuous semi-precious stones in her one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces. Trained as an artist Maria utilises a painter's eye and a sculptor's skill to design using gemstones such as amazonite, andean opal and even lava cut to her own specifications in Peru. Maria then finishes each sculpted stone beautifully by hand using lapidary techniques and silversmithing to forge and combine with molten metal.
