Hi, I'm Maqui
"One should either be a work of art, or wear a work of art."
My love for jewelry started looking at my grandmother’s jewelry collection, but I only knew with certainty that I wanted to become a goldsmith after reading “One Hundred Years of Solitude”.
Even though the Coronel’s gold fish have a different meaning in the book, the image of the Coronel making them in his workshop spoke to me and made me fall in love with the craft.
I’m a designer and professional goldsmith currently living in Switzerland. I started my studies in Industrial Design in Colombia and finished them in Italy. I also studied for several years at the Scuola Orafa Ambrosiana in Milan to become a professional goldsmith and since then, I've been traveling to Spain, Colombia and Switzerland to learn different jewelry techniques.
Traveling, history and learning about other cultures are my passions and I try to incorporate them in my designs. My pieces are filled with cultural references and combine traditional techniques with new manufacturing processes.
"My daughter and I are completely satisfied with our experience with MQMORA. Maqui was very helpful in getting the right design we wanted. I was very impressed with the detailed work from the package to the final product."

"Tuve la oportunidad de adquirir una “Baby Fabiola” diseñada y hecha a mano por Maria Camila Mora. En sus detalles se ve el trabajo y la dedicación de un verdadero artista y es por esto que se trata de una pieza única de joyería, que más que un dije es una hermosa creación de arte de excelente calidad. Aconsejo a cada mujer que quiera sentirse aún más bella y elegante, adquirir una de las joyas de MQMORA"
