Hi, my name is Matthias Knoll, I am 24 years old and live in the beautiful South Tyrol, Italy.
When I was 18 years old, I started the apprenticeship as a watchmaker at my fathers company "Uhren Schmuck Pirchl" in Merano
and completed the apprenticeship in 2013 in Austria.
Currently, I am attending the "Berufschule für Bau- und Kunsthandwerk" in Munich, Germany, working on my second apprenticeship,
but now as goldsmith at the company Staschitz in Schenna.
Since March 2016, I have been designing my own jewelery collection under the name Maez Jewelry.
Whether elegant, classic, unusual, extravagant or minimalistic, I set my creativity no limits.
The result: unique jewelery with an original look, which are carefully handcrafted and made of high quality materials.

From September 29 to October 1, 2016, I took part in the National Championship for Professions in Bolzano, where I won the gold medal of the gold- and silversmiths.
