He graduated as a jeweller in 1978 after three years of study in a jewellery school in Poland and became a jeweller in an art gallery right after that.
His professional journey took him from Poland to Germany when finally, he found home in Melbourne back in the December of 1992.
His impeccable skillset crafting the finest pieces of the industry have continually built up by working with big brand names in Australia such as Holloway or Angus & Coote. He also tasted the exhilaration of founding his own jewellery company called Colonial Gold and after creating many memorable pieces and leaving many satisfied customers he finally ended up with Micheli Jewellery and the Micheli family becoming a true master jeweller with the perfection of jewellery craft and design in his hands.
The roots of My Passion for Jewellery are probably to be searched to the time when I was a child. I’ve spent so many afternoons snooping in my mother and grandmother’s treasures listening at the stories behind every single piece hidden in their jewellery boxes, and I used to have fun to draw them like princesses with their jewels. Now, 20 years later, one of the things I love the most is to remodel and reinvent these jewels full of life’s stories by pulling them out from the drawers where they’ve slept to give them a new form and a new life.
After graduating with honours at the Academy of Fine Arts in Italy, I attended the ‘Scuola Orafa Ambrosiana’, the jewellery making and design school in Milan, where I deepen my knowledge about jewellery making, design and CAD.
After working for a while in Italy in 2015 I decide to leave for Australia.
