Micheline Roi’s first love was classical music. When writing symphonies no longer distracted her from the call of design and the joy of working with her hands, she enrolled in George Brown College’s part-time program for jewellery design. The skills picked up in GBC’s program along with years spent in the museums and fashion districts of Montreal, New York, San Francisco and Toronto, informs her bold, colourful, and contemporary statement jewellery. Micheline believes in jewellery as personal expression, urging her customers to wear pieces that are as beautifully unique as they are. Her bold pieces are marketed under the label Atelier J Contemporary Jewelry.
