The Industrial Designer Maria del Mar Manuel began making jewelry since College, apart from making a degree in Jewelry and Arts and Crafts, she took different courses in wax modeling, Openwork, Cast in lost wax and Art Clay.
After graduating from Universidad Iberoamericana she went to New York City to conduct studies in Fashion Marketing and Fashion Styling at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
From that moment she began to make samples and prototypes of pieces of jewelry, which some later become parts of her first collection.
After she returned to Mexico she founded in partnership with fellow Industrial Designer Michelle Mizrahi the Brand MANUELLE MIZRAHI.
