Michal Golan


Michal Golan, an Israeli-born designer, printer, and ceramist, is the creative force behind the company that bears her name. Michal, who oversees the design and production of all of their product lines draws from a range of influences to create distinctive designs that are immediately recognizable for their ornate, intensely colored arrangements of gemstones and crystals. The work, notable for its meticulous attention to detail, highlights Michal's mosaic-inspired aesthetic and reflects her Israeli heritage and familiarity with the intricacies of Middle Eastern art. 

 
A native of Haifa, Michal moved to the United States in 1976 and attended the University of Maryland, earning a BA in graphic art. She also holds a Master's Degree in Studio Art from New York University. She has exhibited her paintings and prints in several shows in Washington D.C. and New York. In addition, she won the Ben-Yitzhak Medal for Distinguished Children's Book Illustration.
 
All of Michal's designs are handcrafted in a New York studio by a team of dedicated craftspeople, with production closely supervised by Michal. The work is made in 24kt gold or sterling silver electroplated over brass or white metal. Inspired by elaborate designs of Byzantine, Victorian, and Middle Eastern jewelry and decorative arts, Michal's jewelry offers an array of richly hued semi-precious stones, Swarovski crystals, and freshwater pearls. The result combines classic, timeless style with a fresh, contemporary look for a most unique collection of art to wear.
