Michael Nashef - Intersecting Hearts Designer  

    

  Born in Lebanon, Michael Nashef discovered self-expression through design at an early age. At his father’s leather factory, he and his brother designed their own unique backpacks for the coming school year. Unfortunately, civil war lead to the Nashef family losing their factory, so to start a new life the family immigrated to the United States in 1998. One of the few things Michael was able to bring with him was his passion for creating finely-crafted woodworking and jewelry. Now, Michael is located in Portage, MI!

      In 2006, Michael became the first graduate of the Metal/Jewelry design program at Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids, MI, where his avocation became his vocation, designing and creating one-of-a-kind pieces made of gold, silver, and unique gemstones. Along the way, Diamond Doug and Michael met and became fast friends. Today, their families are very close and stay in touch!

      Inspired by travel, nature, and architecture, Michael incorporates elements from these things into his work. When Michael asked his now-wife to marry him, the concept of Intersecting Hearts was born, as Michael began researching symbols of love. Over and over, regardless of culture, age, or era, a universal motif appeared: The heart shape. But Michael continued to delve further.

“I have always believed that each person is unique. When two unique people come together in love, they still remain individuals, but now their hopes, dreams and desires intersect, as their lives grow into a new life together. My Intersecting Hearts design represents this joining of two hearts. The shape formed by the intersection of two hearts resembles two budding leaves, representing a lifetime of growing love.”
