Drawn together during their Bachelor of Applied Arts Degree studies at Toronto’s Ryerson Polytechnical Institute, Maja Ilic and Michael Bremer recognized their common appreciation for innovative design and natural business talents as a recipe for success.
Combining Michael’s passion for quality workmanship and Maja’s love of design, the couple’s dream became a reality with the debut of the Myka Designs collection in 1987, when they turned their hobby into a part time business.
Upon graduation in 1991, Maja and Michael pursued their vision to develop Myka into a full time business.
In 1992 this became a reality with a 75 store order from Ports International.
The years to follow saw Myka Designs sold at notable retailers such as Holt Renfrew and Nordstrom’s and distribution in the UK, Germany and Russia.
In 1996 Maja and Michael moved their business ‘home’ to the west coast of Canada.
Today, ‘Myka’ is proudly designed and produced at the Myka Designs Inc. head o¬ffice and production studio in beautiful Vancouver, Canada.
Innovative design, clever engineering and impeccable quality have been the cornerstone of Myka.
Each piece of jewellery is hand made out of pewter to ensure the quality synonymous with the Myka Designs label.
Collection after collection, Maja and Michael faithfully envision, draft and sculpt each piece of jewellery from concept to finished product.
‘Swarovski’ crystals, semi-precious stones, combined with a breathtaking variety of glass and crystal beads, enhance each signature piece.
Now, a devoted clientele – hungry for originality and appreciative of their quality craftsmanship - anxiously await each new debut.
Maja and Michael chose the road less traveled and have been greatly rewarded.
28 years later, the personal partnership and professional craftsmanship in Maja and Michael Bremer continues to grow.
Living their ‘dream’ and energized by the success of Myka, Maja and Michael celebrate their journey and look forward to the future.
