Made By Maru

Maru (まる) pronounced "mah-ru," means circle.

Made By Maru is my very own life-after-tech adventure, a common story here in San Francisco. After years of working for high profile tech companies in the Bay Area, I decided I wanted a change. I started making jewelry after work, and people noticed! After wearing my pieces around town I received so much encouragement from friends and admirers that I decided to take the plunge and design jewelry for a living! I am so fortunate to be able to do what I love, making special pieces for people who love them.

Founded in February 2012, Made By Maru is about minimal, delicate & modern jewelry. Each piece is handcrafted at my studio in San Francisco. You won't find anything gaudy or clunky here, I like to keep it simple.

I'm a designer dedicated to her work and I put great thought into everything that goes on here behind the scenes. I focus on product integrity and I want your jewelry to last. Even the smallest details matter. From concept and design, to choice of materials, to execution, and finally the presentation; each part of the process from start to finish is equally important. I am proud of what I do, and it shows in the the work I produce. I believe that through providing great customer service, opting for long lasting materials, and maintaining reasonable price points, you will have a great experience here at Made By Maru.

New items are added weekly, so be sure to stop by again soon!

Ideal cleaning results come from using jewelry specific cleaner.

Brass inherently has a golden color that will deepen over time (called patina). Brass, like fine silver will oxidize if not cleaned. If cleaned in time, oxidation can be removed. To brighten simply rub with brass specific jewelry cleaner (such as Brasso), or use my homemade alternative which is listed below!

Never scrub these components! The lifespan of these materials can be lengthened if cared for properly. To wash, gently use a jewelry specific cleaner or see my homemade no-scrub alternative below! As these items are not solid gold or silver, the precious metals layer will wear off over time.

✭ A scrub-free, homemade alternative to jewelry clearers that will work on Sterling Silver, 14k Gold Filled, Raw Brass, and Plated components. This is my favorite jewelry cleaning method that I use on most of my metal jewelry!

- Gather a bowl, 2x2 square of aluminum foil, baking soda, salt, and very hot water
- In bowl lay down aluminum foil, then lay jewelry on top
- Add 1 tsp baking soda + 1 tsp salt
- Pour hot water over jewelry. You will see water bubble a little bit from the baking soda - this is good! Let sit for a minute or two, and watch the tarnish/dirt disappear!
- Follow with a soft cloth to dry and polish
