"Nature's beauty inspires my work."Born in Belgium in 1959, Mia grew up in a small village near the French-Belgium border. "I consider myself a child of nature, I so enjoyed playing in the fields and forests," comments Mia. "After working as a teacher and later for a graphic design company, my husband and I decided it was time to change our busy lifestyles for a less stressful way of living. Asia inspired us, particularly the way of living in South-East Asia.
"We migrated to Indonesia in 1996. I was so excited by the high level of craftwork of the Balinese silversmiths, that I started designing my own jewelry pieces. Nature's beauty inspires my work. My designs have changed throughout the years. I started with classic styles, and now I design Western and modern contemporary pieces of art.
"My modern designs are mainly pure and simple. Next to silver, gemstones and pearls are the materials I most frequently use. I am happy designing, and I have found a select group of highly qualified Balinese silversmiths who help me craft each piece."

I have just received my necklace ""Memory"" by Mia. I am thrilled to bits with my necklace; I have been looking for something along those lines for ages but have not been able to find anything I liked. The pendant is so beautifully crafted with such attention to detail and so unique that I will love wearing it. Thank you Mia and thank you Novica.

""In Between"" is a sleek rectangle of silver embellished with tendrils--art for a suit or graceful simplicity for a t-shirt and jeans. The back is smooth and could be engraved with a name.
OMG, my Moonlit Lily pendant is soo ethereally beautiful. I would love it even more if the pendant did not include a lobster claw clasp so that it can function as a pin - I would love it if the beautiful lily shape just lay against my skin for all to admire. But this piece is *gorgeous* and I am so pleased with it. Thank you Mia!
