Michael Corneau, a master-trained goldsmith, provides his seasoned expertise to help bring to life your own jewelry visions. Having worked with many world renown colored gemstone and diamond experts, he offers his creative ideas in jewelry design to fuse gemology with art and inspire you to create your own masterpiece.
He creates each piece the way a painter creates a portrait. “I want to feel customers out and know them and their personality. The same with gemstones, when I see stones, I let them speak for themselves. It’s challenging, there’s a lot of sketching and hair pulling.” He’s good at getting an idea of what people want, even when they don’t know themselves. And, his clients are almost
always thrilled, whether they brought a family heirloom to be redesigned into something they will actually wear, or commissioned an original piece that will be fleshed out with pen and paper before it is birthed. He’s a constructivist, everything is by hand from scratch, going a different direction from the masses.
Influenced by his study of Interior and Architectural Design at Rochester Institute of Technology where he earned a BFA, Corneau creates simple statement pieces with unexpected elements like swirls of gold punctuated by pearls and the colored stones he loves so much. His deep appreciation of these natural wonders inspires every piece he creates.
