My name is Stephanie, and I am so glad you're here.
'Maris' is my maiden name; it serves as a nod to my family’s Greek Island heritage, and its meaning, 'of the sea,' is constant reminder of our studio’s foundational mission.
I founded Maris to fulfill a dream: to find a beautiful way to support marine conservation, and to build a brand that would serve as a platform to connect like-minded women all over the world, teaching them to serve as stewards and ambassadors for the planet's oceans.
As you explore our website, I hope that you are inspired by our naturally-shaped pearls and by the content we share every week in the Maris Journal. We have curated both to provide you with a myriad of ways to create rituals that celebrate and connect you to the sea.
I hope that you are reminded of your contribution to marine conservation every time you wear your pearls, and that they inspire you to live a life shaped by water, however landlocked you happen to be.
With love and saltwater,
