Catherine Michiels Bio

Designer Catherine Michiels


Catherine is an accomplished jewelry designer who combines this gift with her connectivity to the spiritual world. 

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 a 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.
