Catherine Iskiw creates jewelry inspired by the simplicity of geometric form and clarity of design. By examining materials, utility, and process in each design, she strives to express the essence of each piece.
The materials range from platinum and diamonds to silver and semi-precious stones with a focus on the form and functionality of each piece of jewelry.
Originally from Edmonton, Alberta, she graduated from the University of Manitoba with a bachelor's degree in interior design, before relocating to New York City. During a ten-year career as a corporate interior designer in Manhattan, Catherine began taking jewelry classes at Parsons School of Design and the Fashion Institute of Technology.
Her first work was placed at Stuart Moore, a gallery in NYC, in 1994. Catherine Iskiw Designs was officially launched in 1996 in the New Designer Gallery at the JA Show in New York.
