"Michal Golan is an Israeli born, New York based artist and jewelry designer. Demand for her jewelry quickly grew and in 1982 she launched Michal Golan Jewelry. Michal’s husband, Michael, joined her and they soon moved the company out of their apartment and into a studio in Hell’s Kitchen, NYC. Over the first few years, what started as a two person team grew into a team of over twenty employees. Throughout all this, Michal has stayed committed to creating high quality jewelry, with every piece still crafted by hand in her NYC studio. Each Michal Golan piece has the intricacy, attention to detail, and commitment to an aesthetic vision that one would expect from a piece of art. The complexity of the jewelry comes as no surprise given that Michal began her career as an artist and continues to pursue both ceramics and illustration."
