Julia Marin is an Argentinean, New Zealand based jeweller.
“I was born in Buenos Aires in 1980, after studying Law and Fashion Design (UBA), I discovered Jewellery and starting training at SURJA (Argentinean Jewellers Institute) in 2004.
In 2008 I moved to Aotearoa and started designing and making jewellery inspired by my surroundings. In NZ I also trained in stone setting.
I live and work in Piha from my little home/studio. My style is based on simplicity, organic shapes and the minimalist expression of the metal itself.
I work in Silver and Gold, natural gemstones and recycled materials. I enjoy the process of turning an idea into something palpable, developing it from concept to finished piece working with my hands”
