MARIA G COLLECTIVE
Representing conscious minded designer's jewelry and accessories for the thoughtful consumer.
It's my joy to work with beautiful jewelry, clothing and accessories created by visionary, conscious-minded designers and artisans. Their creativity inspires my creativity, allowing me to present unique collections from boutiques, jewelers, yoga studios, home furnishings stores, galleries to internet retailers.
As much as I adore the artistry of the field, for me, relationships are the centerpiece. I thrive in meeting and connecting with new buyers, while continually nurturing my established network. My entrepreneurial experience in this industry predates the internet and was launched in New York City.
Maria G Collective is comprised of Santore Company
& Tara Gasparian Jewelry.
Santore Company is a family run business established in 2012. Los Angeles native, Katrin Santore, named her company after her late father, whose parents immigrated from Italy to pursue their own dreams in America. Santore Company is a tribute to the dynamo spirit that defines her family and her hometown.
Tara has a natural sense and an amazing eye for selection. Her clientele are women who have their own sense of style and personality, leaders not followers. Her jewelry translates as wearable and unique, like the women who love it. She is inspired by Victorian, French Art Nouveau, Georgian, and Mexican design from the 1930’s-1940’s. But it is the particular element with its imperfect beauty, faded elegance, and time worn patina that begins every new design.
