Jewellery that illuminates the body, nourishes the soul and honors nature… That’s the inspiration for Vancouver-based jewellery designer Michelle Dion, proprietor and creative director of MWare Designs.
Michelle’s designs are bold, organic, distinctive and elegant. Her unique style combines her love of the ocean, sky and forests with the finest semi-precious stones, sterling silver and gold, and traditional fabrication techniques.
Having apprenticed under European-trained goldsmiths for over seven years, all of Michelle’s jewellery is hand-crafted and finished, and she offers only a limited number of each design. MWare creations are enjoyed as near as the North Shore and as far away as Bermuda, France, and Japan.
As an Artist-in-Residence with the Vancouver School Board, Michelle also shares her passion for creative self-expression with local students through her Let’s Create Jewellery program.
Seasonal collections are available at select Vancouver retailers, including Marilyn’s in West Vancouver, and can also be viewed by appointment at the MWare Designs atelier.
Michelle lives in Vancouver with her husband Greg and cat Winston.
