Maha believes in the sense that no matter how big a statement jewellery makes, it doesnít have to mean ostentatious wealth. Maha works in high quality zircon and semi-precious stones, which makes her work affordable, but in no way compromises the extraordinary fine detail, effort and craftsmanship that goes in to creating her jewellery. All pieces are hand crafted and some of the Maha Lozi earring designs involve 1,500 individual stones, which take a full week to create by hand.

The collections blend an antique and vintage look with rock and roll and a gothic edge, marrying Maha Loziís western influences and creativity with local craftsmen skills. Add inspiration from punk, trees, romance, leaves and loss in to the mix and it all adds up to something striking and unique.

To be a child in Lebanon, a woman in modern London, to recover from adversity: it all takes humour, a need not to take oneself too seriously. And one sees this in all Mahaís work. The sense of mixing popular culture, wit and tradition is everywhere in her work. ďI love that whole organic look, antique; trying to create something that looks incredibly old but with the edginess of today.Ē

Unnamed

Each collection is full of exceptional statement pieces, with many that can be layered to create the Maha Lozi distinctive look. The names of the collections reflect a confluence of influences: Sloane, named in Dubai but inspired by an early London address; SW3, a London postcode; Pub Culture; Ab Fab. So if you ever wondered where Joanna Lumley and Beirut meet, itís in Maha Loziís workshops, where jewellery is not just a function of how you want to look, but everything youíve been.

The current collections include the Moet necklace, the Margin Call necklace, Cíest La Vie Earrings, the Wheel of Fortune cuff and On the Edge Earrings to name a few.
