Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Maryanna Basyul and I am founder and designer of Embassy Made. I was born in the Soviet Union before it collapsed and have always been inspired by the cultures of my hometown; Odessa, Ukraine. Starting beading at the age of 5, I was constantly making whimsical little pieces for everyone I knew. Self taught in beading and assembling, I traveled to Denmark to study Metalsmithing and to perfect my bench skills. Art lover with a pursuit to always create, I have always had a wide range of interests. Luckily I found my painting style very early on, which has inspired my jewelry collection. Currently residing in Brooklyn, I am an Architecture student, a painter and a Production Assistant for a fine luxury jewelry company.
