The Maris Sal® story began when Maria Johansson Bayindir, Swedish designer and scuba dive instructor, had had enough of inferior quality accessories which would not stand the test of the nautical environment in which she spent her days. This is the story ...
"I have always spent as much time as possible in or near the water. When I worked as a diving instructor in the Mediterranean, I spent several hours every day in the sea.
I soon noticed that none of my jewelry, except the ones my dad hade made, could withstand being used in the ocean or even in the shower which was unpractical for someone who loves the ocean so much.
Inspired by my father Leif-Göran Johansson, who is a skilled goldsmith with over 50 years of experience in the profession, I decided to follow my dream and create my own jewelry collection.
I searched all over the world for the best materials and was finally able to present a collection of 100% water resistant bracelets of the highest quality.
The dream is to offer quality jewelry to people who love the sea and at the same time be able to give back to the sea in the form of support for environmental organizations such as Greenpeace and the World Wide Fund.
When you wear a Maris Sal piece of jewelry, you wear a symbol of your dreams, something that will remind you to stay "Anchored to your dreams"
All the best from Sweden,
