MAVA HAZE is the brainchild of María Valls, named one of the most promising jewelry designers of 2014 by Vogue Spain.
Born in Castellón, she moved to Barcelona to study fashion design and take a master’s degree in image consulting. After a period spent working as a designer and window dresser for some of the sector’s main Spanish brands, in 2012 her restless and kaleidoscopic mind gave birth to the MAVA HAZE jewelry and accessories project.
With her second collection ISI / ᐃᔨ, inspired by the Inuit people --the ornamental richness of their clothing, the visual power of their everyday tools and surreal nature of their artistic works--, MAVA HAZE grabbed the attention of local and foreign fashion magazines (S Moda, Metal, Harper's Bazaar, Glamour, Vein, Vogue UK, L'Officiel Hellas, Nylon Japan) as well as powerful women such as models / bloggers Natalie Suarez and Laura Hayden, Paz Lenchantin from the Pixies and the Entrance Band, actresses Blanca Suárez, María León and Andrea Guasch, Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards from rock duo Deap Vally or spanish rock muse Maika Makovski.
Her powerfully psychedelic pieces combine stones and metals interweaving mystery, beauty and fascination; Maria Valls devotes herself and her creations to rock and excess, to what is arid and mysterious. And yes, she truly believes in “more is more”.
