Morgan Mikula is about shifting boundaries between natural, unearthed elements and traditional fine jewelry techniques. She finds inspiration from every corner of the earth, and paints a picture in her work. Each piece of jewelry is designed with a story to tell. It's up to the wearer to discover it.
In 2008, Morgan walked into a Fiji Studios metal workshop while studying in Italy. It was that moment where the love for metalsmithing planted a seed and grew roots.
Already in her second year of school as a surrealist painter, she decided to concentrate and receive her BFA in both painting and jewelry and metals. Shortly after graduating, she taught jewelry at Pittsburgh Center for the Arts and worked for a large fine jewelry company, where she learned the ins and outs of the jewelry trade.
Seven years later, she landed herself in the beautiful Hudson Valley, New York where she launched her first body of work online. Using traditional goldsmithing techniques and combining her love for raw beauty, she started her brand. It has always been important use ethically source and recycled materials.
Our mission is to create beautiful, elegant jewelry that will bring the wearer joy for generations to come. The feeling of empowerment and loving the skin you're in, is crucial to positive change and affect. We strive to capture that essence in each handcrafted piece of jewelry.
Just as we believe in ethical business practices, we only use conflict-free stones and recycled precious metals.
Since Day 1, even before we had much to give, our work has been about giving back. Whether it be traveling to Africa and working in a children's hospital, volunteering in a women's shelter, giving to disaster relief, or donating to particular GoFundMe accounts, we feel it is our part to give back.
Currently, we donate 1% of sales to the Thirst Project. Just 50 cents provides clean water to one person for an attire year!
