Michal began making jewelry after falling in love with nylon mesh, a supple, dramatic, and lightweight material once used as a structural element in hats and clothing. Using heat to shape and structure the material into new forms she creates ethereal, delicate and otherworldly pieces. It is the tension between solid structure and fragility that continues to interest her as she explores new ways of using the material. Michal Lando's work has been exhibited nationally in museums and art shows across the country. She lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
