Marla Aaron launched her eponymous collection in 2013 when her combined obsessions with bridges, hardware and jewelry could no longer be ignored.
What began with one lock is now an entire collection designed to be worn in infinite ways and used as “jewel tools” with individuals’ own collections—to redefine the “precious” in jewelry with individuality. Although recognized for its streamlined, industrial look, the collection is deeply rooted in the personal and emotional jewelry of the Victorian and Georgian eras. Her work is collected by a growing group of jewelry aficionados who anxiously await her latest “lock” releases.
Marla’s work is sold in select retailers across the United States, the Middle East, Asia and Europe. The entire collection was on exhibit in 2016 in New York City at the Museum of American Finance in their exhibit, "Gold: Worth its Weight".
Her newest designs are the Cuffling® Series of bracelets and ear cuffs , the Di Me ring and bangle , a secret message ring and bracelet that is a modern take on Gimmel rings and the Our Charmed Box Series of Box charms. New collection releases occur with frequency on her Instagram page.
The #lockyourmom Project, created by Marla, gives single moms sterling silver baby Heartlocks just for them. To date Marla and her team have given out hundreds of heartlocks to deserving single moms all over the country.
The collection is proudly made and finished by hand in New York City.
Marla spent nearly 25 years as a global communications executive, serving in senior roles for publishers and advertising agencies in Europe and the United States.
She resides in New York City with her husband, two sons, and an unmentionable quantity of pets and sporting equipment. You can also find her posting obsessively on Instagram @marlaaaron about jewelry and just about anything that pops into her head.
