Codis Maya jewelry is designed for men and women who want to invest in beautifully made, timeless pieces.
The collection is distinctly British, understated and elegant yet conveys a sense of style and fun with its use of vibrantly colored enamels.
In an age of mass-production, Codis Maya is proud to support the historic traditions of jewelry making by hand.
Each piece is individually crafted throughout workshops in England using techniques, often unique to British manufacturing, that involve specialist craftspeople from start to finish.
For over 25 years, Codis Maya has been creating jewelry for fine menswear shops around the world, as well as designing and developing exclusive collections for luxury fashion houses.
ABOUT CODIS MAYA
Roshini Aluwihare grew up in London. She completed a foundation at Chelsea College of Arts and later received BA Honors in Jewelry & Business Studies at Sir John Cass School of Art and Design.
A focus on ceramics during her time at the college led to an interest in working with enamel.
As a jewelry designer, Roshini observed a distinct lack of choice available in men’s accessories at the time. She founded Codis Maya in 1987, principally creating pieces for men using vitreous enamel.
A variety of other materials are also used such as precious stones, wood, horn, silver and gold.
Each Codis Maya design is illustrated by hand. These go on to be developed in British factories and workshops using highly skilled and artisanal processes that the company strives to preserve in an age of mass manufacturing.
The results are beautiful bespoke objects that have passed through the hands of up to ten different craftspeople and take around three months to create.
Since its first collection of pins and badges for Liberty in the 80s, Codis Maya has grown to become a recognized name, predominantly behind the scenes of the menswear business, creating exclusive collections of jewelry and accessories for some of the world’s luxury fashion houses.
