Beirut based Marie Munier's colorful career trajectory started in the fine arts before she discovered her passion for jewelry making. Munier's signature style, rooted in the splendor and aesthetics of early Mediterranean civilizations, bridges antique jewelry with statement costume pieces. "It makes me happy to see my early pieces withstand the test of time," she says. "I feel that featuring these antique elements, in a way, creates a longer life for them as heirlooms to be passed down from mother to daughter." After decades in the discipline, she has decided to expand the scale of her designs by creating jewelry inspired lighting sculptures and decorative pieces made out of varying shades of brass, yellow, gold and deeper shades of taupe.
