WHY F&L LOVE
Maya Selway

Inspired by Maya Selway’s preoccupation with the story of each gemstone she works with, F made sure that we got in touch with this designer to find out more about her design work for engagement rings.

Her commitment to giving all her commissioned work that personal touch and loving handmade quality radiated from her during our conversation. Evolving from her original calling as a sculptural silversmith, her persona as an artist comes through each of her engagement rings.

Jan. 28 2015 Unconventional Rose Gold Engagement Rings

Maya Selway exhibits her metalwork skills with this gorgeous rose gold design.

Maya Selway | Precious Metal Magician

Maya Selway has a magical way with metals. She has turned the patterns of erosion and aging metal into an artistic vocabulary. Using ancient techniques that she has resurrected and developed like gold dust and fusing, she recreates patterns that are based on her observations of natural rusting.

Maya Selway Challenges Perfection

It is refreshing to encounter Maya Selway’s approach and philosophy about beauty. She challenges the conventional view that beauty in jewellery is defined by degrees of perfection and the quest for the flawless.

Maya celebrates and engages with inclusions (tiny flaws) in the stones that she works with. These small imperfections give the gems their unique personalities, and they reflect their natural origins. Nature is not perfect and its beauty lies in its individuality.

Working with diamonds that have inclusions that give them unusual colour and internal detailing, and a one-of-a-kind nature that comes from handmade production, Maya Selway designs engagement rings that speak to the individual and have their own unique profile.
