Maarit's work is influenced by the traumas, fears and other emotional
and physical experiences that are kept in our memory and by how people react when confronted with them. Subconsciously, she explores and tests the limits and boundaries of the darker side of life and tries to give it a new meaning through jewellery.
Her design process is supported by mixed media drawings and paintings that she transforms into symmetrical 3D shapes. The pieces are mostly produced from metal, a material that allows her to explore different approaches with every piece she makes.
