2014 Year of the Horse
This year, 2014, is the year of the Horse. A person born in the Horse’s year will be cheerful, popular and quick-witted although his changeable nature may cause him to be hot-tempered, rash and headstrong at times. The unpredictable Horse native will fall in love easily and may fall out of love just as fast as he follows his capricious heart instead of his head. Earthly and warmly appealing, he is very perceptive, talkative and has raw sex appeal rather then straight good looks.
As an artist, Maria found the need to not merely curate and collect beauty, but to create it. Upon mastering metalsmithing in New York and apprenticing with various artisans, she launched her eponymous jewelry collection in 2012. Inspired by those very landscapes, her pieces evoke a hyper real vision of nature’s cycle – life and death- the beauty in both.
