Our personal story

The short version…

Inspired by travel, when living in Bali I was inspired by all the incredible handcrafted artifacts I was surrounded by everyday. It would only be years later that I would run into Karjan on Ibiza.

After several drinks we soon discovered we had the same passion for creating something new, something close to our hearts. The idea of MAQÉ was born yet we had no idea of the adventure and learning curve lying ahead of us.

We now are proud to be able to say that we have found more than one reliable ethical gemstone supplier and a fantastic contact who helps us with the production of our ethical jewelry line. But above all, we could not have managed without our dear friends, contacts and network to bring this idea to life.

Grateful for all the experiences up till now but even more excited of what is still to come…
