M. Hisae is the jewelry portfolio of Northwest Connecticut-based artist Michelle Hisae Meronek. Her work transforms concepts of art, object, and Earth into symbols of commitment, to self and others. She sees jewelry as a powerful tool in honoring desire and utilizing beauty to raise one's level of being. Michelle's work is a constant exploration into the unspoken languages of a bi-cultural existence. Her inspiration is rooted in her Japanese and Eastern European heritages, travels throughout the American Southwest, Modernist and Bauhaus art, furniture, architecture, feminine-masculine inquiries, and her continuous spiritual study.
