Maria Tash has been a designer and retailer of fine jewelry for over 21 years. Her interest began at a young age after attending a jewelry design class with her mother. However, this affinity did not fully bloom into a career until some years later after studying in London. Then she discovered her appreciation for the art of body piercing and a love of Indian and Pakistani designs, most notably nostril and ear jewelry.
Maria Tash was the first to offer secure, internally threaded jewelry in a 19 gauge (0.9mm) thickness, roughly the same thickness as earring posts that use a traditional "friction" or "butterfly" backing. Tash threaded jewelry is perfect for earlobe, ear cartilage, or nostril piercings, and offers all of the benefits of internal threading without stretching your piercing to a larger gauge.
