Whimsical, vibrant and lilting, Marie Cabirou’s jewellery is nothing short of magic. In a conversation with Vijetha Rangabashyam she talks about finding inspiration in movement and how she literally dives deep down into the sea to find spark for her creations.

If you believe in unicorns, fairy godmothers, mermaids and that sort of thing, then you will fall in love with Marie Cabirou’s jewellery. There’s a little bit of magic in the way in which the gemstones dance and there’s a little bit of mystery in the way in which every gemstone is married to the other to create perfect harmony. After working under the direction of Raf Simons in Dior for three years, Marie decided to take the plunge and launch her own brand Marie Mas poignantly named after her grandmother Henriette Mas. ‘I studied accessory design (bags, shoes, glasses) and every object I designed always ended up being a kind of jewel, so I guess it just came to me from within. Designing jewellery is amazing, what I love about it is that each piece is like a small sculpture interacting with your body,’ she says.

equivalent degree in accessory design from the High School of Arts and Crafts Duperré and a Master in Design from the IFM (Institut Français de la Mode). ‘I have learned a lot in Dior, but I have always wanted to launch my own brand, so I set out on the journey of Marie Mas 2 years ago.’

Her pieces are moving, literally. London and Swiss blue topaz, African amethyst, pink quartz, blue moon quartz, pink amethyst and semiprecious stones in other pastel colours effervesce and come alive in her pieces. Wearing them would sure be an experience in itself because the pieces simply sing, swirl, sway, dance and what not! To perfect the technique of movement that Marie was looking for in her debut collection, she resorted to none other than craftsmen in India.

Tell us about your prize possession when it comes jewellery.
My favourite jewel is a ring that I have from my grandmother. It was an earring that she got from her aunt and she mounted it onto a ring. It is very beautiful and I wear it when I have an important meeting - I feel like she is there holding my hand when I have it. That’s the magic of jewellery, when it is passed from one generation to another - every new generation cherishes it even more.

How would you define your label’s spirit? My label is about creating jewellery which is alive. I want to go further than just an object, I want to give you an experience, I want to give you magic. For me a design is good only if it is surprising, if it creates an emotion. I want a woman to be mesmerised when they wear Marie Mas jewels.
