Maya Brenner is an industry veteran with an inspiring list of accomplishments since the launch of her eponymous jewelry collection in 1998, including author of Beaded Jewelry: Create Your Own Style and most recently home décor designer. A native of California, her designs are simple and classic, yet bold and modern. Maya’s signature jewelry style is to inject a sense of fun and whimsy into timeless 14k gold and sterling silver bijou. This design aesthetic led to Brenner’s longstanding relationship with Stella & Dot for the past ten years, advising the internationally renowned brand￼ on design and trend direction as well as designing more accessibly-priced Maya Brenner collections for their customers.
Over the years, Maya Brenner Designs has seen an impressive rise in retail presence being picked up by major retailers worldwide. In 2014, Maya launched her letter collection at J.Crew with a small and exclusive group of hand picked accessory designers as part of the retailer’s fine jewelry initiative. Soon after, the same collection launched at A Pea in the Pod as the maternity store’s first fine jewelry offering. The Maya Brenner collection has also been sold at finer boutiques and retailers worldwide including Neiman Marcus, Henri Bendel, Liberty London, Steven Alan, Mark & Graham, Fred Segal and Anthropologie.
In the spring of 2015, Maya debuted her first brand extension, launching the “Maya Brenner Home” collection. The assortment of linen pillows weaves the essence of the iconic letter and state jewelry designs Brenner is known for into chic home decor accents. With delicate gold embroidery and customizable details, the pieces perfectly embody Maya’s jewelry aesthetic.
Maya Brenner Designs have been spotted on some of the most stylish celebrities including Kendall Jenner, Jessica Alba, Rihanna, Emma Roberts, Katy Perry, Mila Kunis, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Biel, Penelope Cruz, Meghan Markle, Cameron Diaz, Reese Witherspoon, Salma Hayek and Nicole Richie, among many others.
