The Pratt Institute graduate spent years as a creative director in the advertising industry working with global luxury fashion brands including Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, and Oscar De La Renta. After years of working in advertising, Marei still had a desire to sculpt something tangible. Marei rediscovered her love of jewelry, tracing back to her Egyptian ancestry and a family tradition of collecting gold jewels. Studying in fine jewelry school under master jewelers in New York City, she uncovered a true passion for wax modeling and metal smithing and began to build an archive of precious gemstones. Pulling from a unique pool of inspiration, the artist channels the spirits from her travels, occult movies, old Hollywood and ancient Egypt and experiments with a hybrid of Art Deco and archeology to create a symphony of ominous opulence in her contemporary fine jewelry line, a brand that promises superior quality, seductive beauty, and confidence.

Triggered by play and tempted by power, the desire is like no other, the attraction undeniable.
