Growing up in a multi-lingual household, Nathalie often found herself in a state of incomprehension of surrounding conversations. It was during these occasions that jewellery was used as an escape; a bodily presence that offered relief from boredom and uncomfortable situations. Interested in ideas of escapism, relationships, and connections, her work is manifested through the use of colours with a particular consideration of materiality and movement.
Originally from Montreal, Quebec, Nathalie Maiello’s pursuit of a formal education in jewellery design and metalsmithing has led her to move from coast to coast. She currently resides in the United States.
