Maria Podskrebko

Maria moved to New Zealand from St. Petersburg, Russia in 2011, now she lives and makes jewellery at her home studio in West Auckland.
Since 2016 Maria has been making niobium, titanium and silver jewellery under her brand Awaroa Rd Jewellery, trying to blend aesthetics with wearability. Her pieces are made by hand, using argon welding and hydraulic metal forming. She draws most of her inspiration from tools and materials at hand, as well as from new technical processes she learns along the way.
