MIANSAI by Michael Andrew Saiger is an upscale line of jewelry that meshes vintage style with wartime relics. Reflecting his personal connection to all his designs, Michael combined his first, middle and last names to call the collection MIANSAI.
His pieces turn remnants of war into wearable art. Says Michael, "Most of my inspiration comes from objects I found at antique shows and auctions around the world. I’ve also had a few things passed down from my mother, who owns an antique shop." Most influential to his designs are bullets, military pins, old coins and even model airplane parts. In his downtown Miami studio, Michael reinvents history by forging these finds into 14K-gold and sterling silver bracelets, necklaces, rings and cuff links. The entire MIANSAI collection is made by hand to give each piece its own unique look without losing the old-time feel of decades past.
