WELCOME TO MARIS SAL
I make sophisticated jewellery with a subtle nautical feel, to celebrate the love for the oceans and the seaside lifestyle.
Made from sterling silver, stainless steel, brass and authentic nautical sailing cords and precious stones I hand craft my jewellery on the Swedish island of Hönö.
Maris Sal is a life-style brand containing thoughtfully designed collections of high quality, nautical jewelry and accessories best described as “casual luxury” because it is both stylish and relaxed.
♡ To help preserve the natural beauty of our planets oceans and wildlife I make a monthly donation to carefully selected wild life foundations and projects ♡
Great attention to detail is within every handmade piece of Maris Sal's designs.
I make a conscious effort to use quality materials - primarily 925 Sterling silver, brass, stainless steel, authentic nautical sailing cords, precious stones and pearls.
Together with the classic and sophisticated designs my jewelry is made to be a joy for the wearer for years to come.
Rather than relentlessly following the ever changing fads I hold on to my impression of understated luxury, creating accessories that combine classic simplicity with high quality, conveying a timeless feeling.
Maris Sal is Latin for "sea salt" and a symbol of our commitment to our oceans.

» ALLERGY INFORMATION
I create my jewelry in a smokefree environment but we have pets. Sterling silver is, as all my jewelry materials, naturally lead- and nickel-free.
» JEWELRY MATERIALS
The silver I use is genuine Sterling silver 925. The number 925 stands for 925/1000 parts pure silver (92.5%).
The steel is stainless steel. The brass is raw golden brass.
A lot of the popular jewelry brands today use so called “silver plated” metal.
Unfortunately the term silver plated only means that the piece has been coated with a microscopic layer of silver over a non-precious metal like brass or copper or an even cheaper metal alloy.
Such a plating will soon wear off and reveal the underlying metal.
The lifespan of such jewellery will therefore be short and it is impossible to repair.
Please note, no parts of Maris Sal jewelry is "silver plated".
A piece of 925 sterling silver though is made to last a life time.
Genuine sterling silver jewelry is recognized by the 925-stamp, which guarantees the silver content and can be found on all Maris Sal silver jewelry.
All my marline hemp cords are authentic boating hemp marline and some are tarred with natural tar. These cords have the characteristic and distinct nautical look, feel and scent (!) of tar.
Although radiating a classic nautical look, it is best not to take the hemp jewelry with you in the water; the hemp cord will shrink quite a bit and age somewhat before its time.
