Meet the Designer: Maxine Damali Gibbs

The name "Damali" means Beautiful Vision. In 1990, soon after moving from her birthplace of Jamaica to New York, Maxine "Damali" Gibbs had a desire and vision to offer original, exquisite high quality jewelry at a low cost, inspired by Africa and the Caribbean, and comparable to the beautiful earrings found in New York's Greenwich Village. The demand for her unique earrings grew, and soon clients were requesting matching bracelets, anklets, and necklaces. Since then, Damali has sold her jewelry in Miami, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and has even shipped worldwide, thus creating her own brand known today as MaliMasani, named after her four daughters: (Mal)ika, (Ima)ni, (Sa)fiya, and (Ni)a. Today, Damali is joined by her daughter, Nia, who is an interior design graduate from Ringling College, and is her right hand, creating all of the branding, marketing, and photography; with her other daughters involved in different aspects of MaliMasani as well.

Self-taught with over 30 years of experience, Damali Gibbs uses semi-precious Gemstones, Agate, Glass, Wood, Metal and Shells to create one-of-a-kind pieces that complement the individual's expression of self. No two pieces are exactly alike, enhancing the wearer's sense of individuality and unique style. Pieces can be made to order to your specific length and/or color. If you have a design in mind but have no desire to make your own jewelry, Damali can bring your design to life. Email damali@malimasani.com for more information on custom pieces and prices.
