PARIS, Apr 9, 2009 / FW/ — Having learned jewelry making at the Arts & Métiers Institute in Brussels, then becoming a Reiki Master later, Catherine Michiels has a unique approach in designing jewelry.
To Catherine, jewelry making is an art; combine that with her Reiki training, she also put her spirituality in her creations. Reiki is an ancient Japanese discipline that uses the flow of energy to reduce stress promoting relaxation and healing.
Hence to Catherine, jewelry becomes symbols of beauty and spiritual awakening. The pieces in the ‘Recognition’ collection refer to the passion of the designer. On a silk ribbon around the wrist or neck, we wear the ‘Charms’ that responds to us. A ‘Zinia’ symbolizes friendship, the ‘Lotus’ stands for purity and peace while Le Petit Marcel attracts luck and meetings.
With Catherine Michiels, the spirit and the spiritual shift to the border of fashion and dream; Catherine Michiels jewelry is worn by Hollywood’s elite that include Angelina Jolie, Sharon Stone, Gwyneth Paltrow and Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp.
In Paris, Catherine Michiels Fine Costume Jewelry is available exclusively at L’Eclaireur.
