Carla Maxine Jewellery
Carla Maxine Germann creates bespoke pieces of jewellery that tell stories; magical tales of the alchemy of nature’s own jewels – precious metals and gems found in the depths of the earth’s core. These pieces are put together in a way that challenges the status quo of the jewellery design industry. It’s something different, something unique. Something made specially for you.
Together, let’s create the ring of your dreams.

The Hybrid Collection is an ongoing project. It was inspired by my love of hybridity in aesthetics, the development of my Cluster Collection as well as our move to Australia from our country of birth, South Africa. My husband and I made the move in April 2016, and it has been an interesting experience and amazing journey – setting up a life in a new country, especially a new continent that I visited for the first time only in December 2015.
I find that creating art is a way of dealing with emotions when overcoming something big that happened in your life. That’s the way it is for me, anyway. And that is how I see my jewellery – as little pieces of art.
