I love when people tell their story. So here’s mine.

It all started from honoring a reflective state of mind.

By the time I realized the fast fashion path wasn’t for me, I had already finished four years of college and applied to large fashion house brands. There were years invested into my career path, tools and a senior fashion show and yet here I was, thumbing through a jewelry design book a week after graduation. Still, I couldn’t deny how jewelry design had drawn me in. I felt I had found a part of myself waiting to explore the medium of metal. My mind was captivated around metal while my creative practice slowly evolved.

Learning the art of metalsmithing felt natural. It was an opportunity to marry my love of craft(wo)manship with my years of design experience. My journey has come full circle.

With a desire to push beyond the creative limitations, Matilda Bliss Studio was born. This studio is a haven for creativity without limits — a place where jewelry & adornments are created into one of a kind pieces that people can truly connect with.

The highest of standards are maintained throughout Matilda’s entire process. From collecting mica and sourced materials to casting and setting every last stone, Matilda makes sure that every piece of jewelry is made to last. Commitment to quality is of the utmost importance. Every piece is inspected by hand and given close attention to detail before being sent to you.


staying curious and open to new ideas, perspectives and ways of seeing things is vital as a person, as a business, and for creating designs. As a creative, curiosity is essential. Matilda notices all the small details, always listening intently from an intuitive place. 


 A bit abstract, yes, but a guiding principal nonetheless. Spread love always. For Matilda, this translates into the beauty we see in design. In the minimal simplicity of how we enjoy the composition of a pair of earrings or necklace. It carries intension but gives you room to breathe. It is a goal for each design to spread love to our customers and have them feel from wearing Matilda Bliss Studio jewelry. Love is the center of it all, to be honest.
