Catherine Iskiw

"The best designs are often the simplest. If I can achieve elegance in a very clean design, then I know that I have created something special."

Catherine Iskiw creates jewelry inspired by clarity of design and simplicity of pure geometric form. She combines utility, materials, and process in each design. Various matte finishes contribute to the industrial quality of the jewelry. Using materials that range from platinum and diamonds to silver and semi-precious stones, Iskiw focuses on the combination of form and functionality.

Originally from Edmonton, Alberta, Iskiw graduated from the University of Manitoba before relocating to New York. During a ten-year career doing corporate interiors in Manhattan, Iskiw began taking classes at Parson School of Design and the Fashion Institute of Technology.

The artist officially launched her jewelry business in 1996 in the New Designer Gallery at the JA Show in New York.
