Discover Our Studio Production
Consciously handcrafted in-house
Since the label’s inception, all Bianca Mavrick Jewellery is consciously handcrafted from Bianca’s own studio in Australia via small batch, in-house studio production!
Every piece of jewellery passes through our hands before it heads out into the world - there is the upmost attention to detail paid in every aspect of the production process, to ensure we create luxury, contemporary costume jewellery with a distinct differentiation in quality in comparison to offshore manufactured costume jewellery.
We can’t imagine our jewellery being made any other way! Take a look behind the scenes and discover our production processes.

Our precious metals are sourced from Australian Silver mill manufacturer whose commitment to environmental sustainability means they use only recycled raw materials wherever possible and to limit our impact on the environment.
Bianca Mavrick Jewellery is small-scale independent label with big ideas when it comes to our design and production philosophy:
Original Design Components
Every component that makes up a design is an original piece designed and developed by Bianca. Design sketches, line drawings and paper cut-outs are translated into design components that are put through a variety of production processes to become a finished piece!
A Component-based Design Practice
Bianca Mavrick Jewellery employs a ‘Minimal Waste’ strategy through a component based designs practice.
The label’s design philosophy is based on motif components which are used across multiple designs and seasons. Components are often featured in multiple colour ways and the colour coating is only applied as it is needed. This means that excess components at the end of the season can be re-worked into future seasons designs to minimise any waste or dead stock.
Small batch production
Bianca Mavrick Jewellery is handcrafted in small batches as demand is required. Because our jewellery is consciously crafted in-house we are able to control our production and stock levels to minimise waste and dead stock each season.

Going through the production process involves many repetitive silver-smithing hand tasks like drilling, filing, soldering, sanding and polishing.
Along with our design philosophy to minimise waste in stock production, Bianca Mavrick Jewellery employs sustainable business practices to ensure our in-house production makes a minimal impact on the environment.
Sustainable Production Practices
We employ sustainable studio practices to ensure our studio runs efficiently and consciously. Scrap precious metals are recycled for re-use. We save and reuse all boxes and packaging. All excess soft plastics are reused as much as possible and eventually sent to be recycled via RedCycle. All chemicals used in the production of the jewellery are eco-friendly alternative to protect our health and the environment.
Industrial production processes that occur outside of the studio are outsourced to local, Australian businesses, supporting the local economy. Some processes like gold-plating and colour coating occur outside our studio. We have great partnerships with local manufacturers who complete these processes to the same level of attention to detail we have.
Above: The assembly process
After our unique components go through their production processes we hand assemble every piece. This is the fun part. We love to assemble the jewellery while listening to a great podcast. Because each piece passes through our hands during this process ensuring every piece is perfect quality.
