Behind every MYEL creation hides the devoted work of our passionate team of Montreal-based jewellers. Without them in our team, we would not be able to proudly present high-end jewelry collections entirely made in Montreal. We want to put the spotlight on these exceptional craftsmen that bring to life the jewelry you proudly wear.
The second portrait of this series is that of Phan, our outstanding jeweller who crafts the masters from Joseph’s 3D wax models, creates the molds for our jewels, casts them and is also in charge of the finishing touches.
