"I focus on designing jewelry that is simple & elegant, while also making a statement. I love pieces that are on trend without being "trendy". Which is why it's my mission to make jewelry that is fashionable and lasts for years to come..."
Designer Simone Malave began her love of jewelry when she started working in a quaint little jewelry shop in beautiful Huntington Beach, CA, and the rest is history. She worked for several years in the jewelry industry; learning about the business and expanding her skills in design & fabrication. Inspired by the art form, Simone studied wax carving in Maine and metal-smithing in Nashville, though most of her skills are self taught. Starting Studio Malavé was a longtime dream that became a reality in the Fall of 2016.
Studio Malavé designs are made from hand carved wax then cast in sterling silver with a dark oxidized finish, all completely done in the United States. The unique designs are bold & edgy with minimalist touches.
Each piece of SM jewelry is designed, hand carved, and assembled in beautiful Nashville, TN!
