Karl Mazlo

Karl Mazlo first discovered his love for jewellery and created his eponymous brand in Paris where he was born. As a jewellery artist, Mazlo's curiosity and passion led him to seek out new techniques using rare materials.

After graduating in jewellery design from École Boulle, he trained with a number of prominent jewellers. However, his desire to go against the flow of the more traditional aspects of the jewellery industry and to create a dialogue between material, tools, light and creativity led him to found his own brand.

He completed an artist residency at the Villa Kujoyama in Kyoto, where he discovered traditional Japanese techniques mixing elegance, rigidity and ancestral skill.

He returned to Paris with a desire to create links between different cultures and traditions and continues to travel regularly to meet and explore the work of a wide variety of artists and artisans.
