Catherine Michiels

Catherine is an accomplished jewelry designer who combines this gift with her connectivity to the spiritual world. "In the summer of 1973, I spent time with my Grandmother buying costume jewelry from the traveling salesmen for her boutique on the boardwalk in the North Coast of Belgium. I had just started to make enamel pendants when a client saw them and placed an order for 100 pieces. My jewelry career had begun." Trained at the Arts & Metiers Institute in Brussels, she studied gemology and diamonds grading at the prestigious High Council for Diamonds in Antwerp. She worked in the fashion industry at Marie Claire and Elle, and in film production for many years, but returned to designing and creating unique jewelry as an expression of her truest life passions. Her nomadic travels and freedom of spirit are present in all of her works. Each piece symbolizes her experience and intention. Also Reiki Master, Catherine's creations transcend both jewelry and art. They carry a spiritual consciousness shared by those who wear them and connect with her vision and aesthetic.
