Michelle Meronek of M. Hisae Jewelry

"For me, jewelry is a form of ancestral language."
M. Hisae is the jewelry portfolio of Northwest Connecticut-based artist Michelle Hisae Meronek, blending concepts of art, object, and earth into symbols of commitment, to self and others. Pieces are designed as a blending of disciplines and cultures that influence her the most - her Japanese and Eastern European heritages, travels throughout the American Southwest, Modernist and Bauhaus art, furniture, and architecture, feminine-masculine inquiries, and her continuous study of terra-spirituality.
