|Michal is an Israeli born artist who resides in New York. She is well known for her beautiful designs in jewelry and covered boxes with a Judaic theme and mezuzahs.

Michal's designs are inspired by Byzantine jewelry with its generous use of gemstones and pearls, and from jewelry made during the reign of Queen Victoria. Influences from Middle Eastern art, particularly mosaic styles are also apparent in her lavish decoration of surfaces and use of brilliant colors. Michal is a graduate of the University of Maryland in Graphic Art and holds a Masters Degree from New York University in studio art.
