Maki Handmade - by Frederike & Camilo

ABOUT US
We are Frederike & Camilo, a German-Colombian, world-traveling couple. We make jewelry inspired by nature, the beauty of crystals and the vibe of a free-spirit lifestyle.

HOW IT STARTED...
We are both travellers and nature lovers. Camilo was born in Medellin, Colombia and has been making jewelry for over 10 years. He started making and selling handmade jewels out of neccessity - and it still became his passion and way of being able to travel. He has travelled almost all countries in South America by selling his jewelry on the street, the beach and small markets.

I, Frederike, also always liked to be creative and started to make macrame jewelry during my time working in Peru, even dreaming about owning my own little shop, but I was discouraged by societie's idea that "art could never mean success".

We finally both met in Cusco, Peru and fell in love ;) Camilo convinced me to quit my job and go traveling with him. Ever since we have been living our dream of being creative and being able to travel at the same time.

"MAKI HANDMADE" WAS BORN...
After returning to Colombia from our 8 months journey through Peru, Bolivia, Brasil, Paraguay and Argentina, we founded our won brand, "Maki Handmade" that we now run out of a little studio in Stuttgart in the South of Germany (or, when we visit Camilo's family, in Medellin, Colombia).

OUR GEMSTONES
We both love crystals and gemstones and believe in their unique spiritual and healing power. We purchase our gemstones in Jaipur, India, where we travel regularly and work with small workshops and family-run bussinesses. Our raw gemstones mostly come from South America.

We still like to travel the world, learning from local craftsmen soaking up every bit about the very different cultural art methods of jewelry making and gemstone polishing that exists.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

CUSTOM ORDERS
Please note that most of our items, especially our gemstone rings are MADE TO ORDER just for you in the size and material you choose. Each item will be made JUST FOR YOU which is why we ask you to make sure you order the right size and only place your order if you are sure you want to keep your item. Should you have ordered the wrong size or are not completely happy with your item we are happy to adjust it - please contact us as soon as possible and we will work on a solution! ;)

PERSONALIZATION
Any product can be personalized, for example by using another material, gemstone, thread color or specific size / length. We can also fabric your very own and unique custom-made design. Feel free to contact us!

Sizing details

Our ring sizes are indicated in mm and refer to the diameter or circumference of the ring. You can also let us know your exact size under "ADD YOUR PERSONALIZATION". If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact us.

Care instructions

We love natural brass for its shiny and gold-like appearance. Brass doesn't loose its color and is 100% waterproof; you can wear your ring while showering and swimming, even on the beach. Brass tends to tarnish over time but can easily be cared for to maintain its shiny golden look. Many people, however, even prefer the so-called "patina" as it adds color and character to your piece of jewelry. If you prefer your jewelry bright and shiny, you can easily clean it simply by washing it with hot water and liquid hand-soap or shower gel. When finished rubbing or scrubbing, rinse carefully with tap water until the water runs smoothly without the slippery soap feel. Dry your jewelry properly as to not leave any watermark.
