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