Maria is always looking for inspiration in all aspects of her life, and having lived in many different countries, she seeks to find materials from different cultures to incorporate into her jewelry designs.
She hand crafts all the jewelry, and each piece can customized to deliver the perfect fashion statement. All the leather she uses has been donated by local businesses (Bloomingdale’s home store, Columbia College Chicago, Discount Textile Outlet Chicago) as she is a believer in sustainable fashion and upcycling. Maria likes to find old, damaged accessories and repurpose them, often finding accent pieces in local flea markets.
All the RAW EDGE by Eva Airam Studio jewelry pieces are hand cut as are all the leather parts of the accessories. Everything is made in Maria’s home studio located in Chicago.
